A man was injured when he was shot in the hand and thigh Sunday night in a drive-by shooting on Winston Road, Columbus Police said Monday.

The shooting happened about 11 p.m. when two men were walking along the south Columbus street.

"A car drove by, then came back by on a second pass," Lt. John McMichael said. "Someone was hanging out the window and fired at them."

The victim was struck in the right hand and the bullet went into his right thigh," McMichael said. The man was treated and released from The Midtown Medical Center.

Police have no suspects and the car was described as "a red or burgundy Honda, Toyota, Kia or something like that," McMichael said.

The case remains under investigation.
