Peoria police located a vehicle Tuesday morning that had been stolen from the parking lot of the Peoria Crossing shopping mall on Monday.

The carjacking left the vehicle owner with a gunshot wound to their leg that was not life-threatening and a possible head injury.

The vehicle, a gray 2004 Toyota 4-Runner, was found by Phoenix police unoccupied in the area of East Dunlap Ave between 18th and 19th streets about 6:45 a.m., according to Peoria police spokesperson Sgt. Brandon Sheffert.

A suspect had not been located as of Tuesday afternoon, Sheffert said.

On Monday about 11:30 a.m., police responded to the parking lot of the shopping mall after reports of a possible shooting. When they arrived, officers found a man who was possibly hit on his head with an object and who had a gunshot wound to his leg. According to police, the injured man owned the car that was stolen.

Police said after the suspect shot the car owner, the suspect stole the vehicle and left the area.

The Peoria Fire-Medical Department transported the injured car owner to a local hospital for medical treatment, according to police.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Sheffert said detectives were still investigating the stolen vehicle for evidence.
