A 22-year-old man was shot in the leg during a drug deal in Lincoln early Thursday morning, a police spokeswoman said. 

An officer working another call in the area of Eighth and Washington streets heard a gunshot, Officer Angela Sands said. 

He found the injured man in the 1200 block of Washington Street, Sands said. 

Lincoln Fire and Rescue crews took the man to a local hospital, where he was treated and released, Sands said. 

Police are still trying to determine who fired the shot. 

The man told officers that after he was shot, a gold necklace, gold bracelet and his iPhone X were taken, Sands said.
