The Tulsa Police Department is investigating after a shooting victim showed up at a Walgreens near 31st & Garnett Tuesday morning.
 
According to TPD, the man was shot several times, apparently as he drove down 31st Street. Officers said the shooting victim pulled into the drug store parking lot for help.
 
The man got out of the vehicle which then rolled backwards across the lot, officers said.
 
Witnesses told police the man threw something away in a trash can, and officers said they found a trail of blood leading to the trash can. They also recovered methamphetamine and a pipe, TPD said.
 
The man was taken to the hospital with significant blood loss, but police said he's expected to recover. Officers said they found drugs in the man's vehicle, and they are investigating whether it is a drug-related shooting.
 
 

Officers said the suspect was driving a white SUV, and they think the victim knew the shooter. They are working to learn more.
