An 18-year-old Gadsden man is recovering from a gunshot wound to the face.
The incident happened about 8:00 Wednesday night in front of the man's house on Slusser Avenue. Sergeant William Johnson of the Gadsden Police Department confirms reports the incident happened after the victim's ex-girlfriend told a man that the victim had broken into his home. The man came to the victim's house, looking for a fight. When the victim denied breaking into anyone's house and turned to leave, the man grabbed him and pointed a gun to his face. The victim was shot during a struggle with the suspect. Police say the investigation is ongoing.
