NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Palestinian police found a young Palestinian man suffering from a gunshot inside a vehicle on Saturday evening, at a crossroads near the village of Asira al-Shamaliya north of Nablus in the northern West Bank.

Police spokesman Luay Irzeiqat told Ma'an that a police patrol stopped a vehicle for inspection and found among the passengers a 28-year-old suffering a gunshot wound in his back.

Initial investigations, according to Irzeiqat, revealed that the man was shot during a brawl inside Israel.

Irzeiqat said that the man had been "on the run" from police for several years after being sentenced in absentia to a 36-month prison sentence.

An ambulance was called to the scene take the injured man, who remained unidentified, to the hospital. Irzeiqat quoted doctors as saying the man's condition was moderate.
