SEATTLE - Seattle police are investigating a shooting in the High Point neighborhood after a man showed up at a hospital with a gunshot wound early Friday morning. 

At about 1 a.m., police received several 911 calls about gunshots near Lanham Place Southwest and Southwest Morgan Street. 

According to police, officers responded to the location to investigate the gunshots, which another patrol officer heard while working. However, officers were not able to find any damage or victims in the area. 

Ten hours later, police received a report of a man in his 30s that showed up at an Auburn hospital with a gunshot wound in his leg.

Police said the man told officers that he had been shot early Friday morning in West Seattle.

Detectives are now investigating the shooting, but it is unknown why the man waited to seek treatment and never called police about the incident.
