Police say a shooting victim was apparently taken by a friend to a South Florida Wal-Mart instead of a hospital and left outside the store.

Miramar police spokeswoman Tania Rues says in an email that the victim was suffering from a gunshot wound when he was left outside the store Monday afternoon. He was later taken to a hospital for treatment and was listed in stable condition. Rues' statement didn't say who found the victim or who took him to the hospital.

Rues says that police are still trying to determine where the shooting happened but that it wasn't the store or in the parking lot.

She says the victim hasn't been cooperative with investigators.

The store remained open during the investigation.

No further details were immediately available.
