Police were looking for a small pickup truck, possibly white, on Tuesday night following a South Pueblo shooting in which a man was wounded.
Police Sgt. Franklyn Ortega said police were called about 9:20 p.m.to a report of shots-fired in the 700 block of Palmer Avenue.
 Ortega said an uncooperative man was found.
"He had a gunshot wound. He was transported to an area hospital," said Ortega. "It looks like he is going to live but we have an officer stationed at the hospital to get condition updates."
While the victim would not help police, Ortega said officers had several leads and were seeking the small pickup truck, possibly white, and driven by a woman. 
In addition, Ortega said video was providing some leads in the probe. He asked the public with pertinent information to contact police
