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.
