Around 10:30 p.m. on Sunday, Huntsville police responded to a call about a shooting on Niblick Avenue.

When police arrived, they found a man with a gunshot wound to the mouth. 

Police said the victim told them he was in a car with two other men. When he turned around to speak to one of the men, the man shot him in the mouth and stole his car, a white Volvo.

He then ran from where the incident happened to the dead end of Niblick.

The investigation is still underway.
