Police say a man apparently drove himself to a Sioux Falls hospital Wednesday morning with gunshot wounds in both legs. But Sioux Falls Police Officer Sam Clemens says the man wouldn’t tell police how he was injured.

“He showed up at the hospital and had a wound to both his legs,” explained Clemens. “It seems the bullet went in on the outside of his left leg, traveled through the leg and then ended up hitting his right leg somewhere around the right knee.”
