Man left on side of road after shooting, police investigate

S. WHITEHALL TWP., Pa. - Why was a man shot and then dumped on the side of the road? South Whitehall Township police are trying to figure that out.

Monday morning, officers found a man shot multiple times on the side of Hamilton Boulevard near Dorney Park.

Police say the man was shot somewhere else, then taken to that location and left.

"Did you hear a shot?" 69 News Reporter Bo Koltnow asked neighbor Ed Lewis.

"No," he said. "There was no gun shot, there was some activity out there on the street."

Lewis said he could see police near the intersection of Haines Mill Road and Hamilton Boulevard around 6:30 a.m.

"Obviously it's concerning when you find something like that," Lewis said.

South Whitehall Township police say they found a 27-year-old man shot several times in the lower body.

Investigators say the man was shot hours prior at a different location, then taken and dropped off at Hamilton and Haines Mill by a dark-colored SUV.

The victim was taken to Lehigh Valley Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

Police say with pain medication, the victim has been in and out of consciousness and hasn't been able to tell any details about the shooting.
