CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

A man is being treated in the hospital after police say he was shot early Wednesday morning at a motel in east Charlotte.

According to police, the man was staying at the Budget Inn along Independence Boulevard with a roommate.  That roommate told police that a masked man shot his friend in the stomach.

Officers say the man then ran to a home across the street and got a ride to the hospital. A homeowner called police after he witnessed "suspicious activity" outside.

The man was apparently driven to Carolinas Medical Center and is expected to be okay.

Officers say they have not been able to talk to the victim or get a good description of the shooter.
