CHESTERFIELD, Va. -- A man was hospitalized after an overnight shooting. Chesterfield Police continued their search for the gunman.

A 22-year-old man called 911 around 1:20 a.m. Sunday and told dispatchers he had been shot.

First responders found the victim at the Irongate Shopping Center off Iron Bridge Road a short time later.

Paramedics took the man to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, no word on his condition.

While the victim was found in the shopping center, investigators said the shooting happened somewhere else.
