HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

One man was rushed to the hospital after being shot during a drug transaction outside a gas station.

Huntsville Police said the victim, Scott Allen Rider, 34, was with a friend outside the Citgo on Pulaski Pike waiting for a wrecker to tow their vehicle. Police said the two men were approached by a vehicle with three men who offered to sell them drugs.

The friend told police he walked into the E-Z Mart to return a phonebook they were using when he walked back out and noticed Rider was being attacked by the men after attempting to finish the drug transaction.

When the Rider attempted to run from the men, police said, that's when he was shot in the back.

Rider was taken to Huntsville Hospital where he underwent surgery and is expected to make a full recovery.

Huntsville Police have not yet arrested anyone for the shooting.
