A Uniontown man was treated for a gunshot wound of the leg following an early-morning incident on Austin Street, police Chief Jason Cox said.

Richard Hinton, 23, was discovered slumped over in the front passenger seat of a car after it had left the scene of a large gathering outside Esther's Tavern when police arrived at 1:30 a.m. Thursday.

Cox said officers were patrolling the area when they saw 20 to 40 people gathered around the car.

Officers conducted a traffic stop a short distance from the bar, where they discovered Hinton with a gunshot wound in his right thigh.

Hinton was taken to Uniontown Hospital for treatment.

Police interviewed Hinton and numerous others at the scene but have not determined how Hinton was shot.
