A Columbus man was hit in the thumb during a Wednesday afternoon shooting at a gas station, police said.

The 26-year-old was standing at a gas pump at the Mystik Mart, 645 Brown Ave., around 4:20 p.m. when the shooting happened, said Lt. Richard Gaines.“Another car pulled up,” the lieutenant added. “One of the people in that car got out and started shooting.”

The man was struck in his right thumb, Gaines said.

The suspect’s car, a silver GMC Envoy, has three people in it. Police have no descriptions of the suspects, Gaines said.

The man struck by gunfire was taken by ambulance to Doctors Hospital, where he was treated and released, the lieutenant said.
