The victim was taken to Frye Regional Medical Center by a family member and is expected to recover.
The suspect was described as a young white male around age 20. He was driving a Volvo that was either silver or beige in color. The vehicle could have been a model from the 1990's, and the gas cap cover and all four hubcaps were missing. Police have not released a motive, but believe the shooting was intentional rather than a random crime.
Authorities have asked anyone with information on this case to contact the Hickory Police Department directly by calling (828) 328-5551.
