HAMPTON -- Authorities are searching for a suspect who shot a man in Hampton Tuesday evening. 

Emergency personnel received the call in the 3200 block of Auburn Lane around 7 p.m., according to Sgt. Jason Price with the Hampton Police Division. 

When paramedics arrived on scene, they found a male victim suffering from an apparent gunshot wound to his torso. He was then transported to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries, Price said. 

Witnesses tell 13News Now they believe there may have been a shootout. 

"I was walking to the spot I just heard the shots you know what I'm saying; two different types of guns shooting at each out it was like a war out here..." one resident said. 

Anyone with information is urged to call the Hampton Police Division.
