Columbus police are investigating after a man was shot near trash dumpsters at an apartment complex.

It happened on Overhill Way, off South Hamilton Road, in Madison Township.

Police say the man was found on the ramp to the garbage dumpsters, with one gunshot wound. He was found near the trash, but they now say they're not sure if he was taking out trash at the time.

Authorities have not released information about the victim's condition, but say he was taken to Grant Medical Center.

The suspect was reportedly wearing a hoodie pulled so tight, his face couldn't be seen, according to police. They also say there is conflicting information about a possible description.

ABC 6 / FOX 28 will continue to update this story with more information.
