    As an employee of a WakeMed ER, it does happen often but usually with coperation from the victim. Maybe that's why they think it's a story.

    And of course, he has no idea of who shot him, the discription of the suspect, or why he was shot in the first place.

    Good point Garnerwolf. I have seen this happen numerous times when I used to work as a medic. I would imagine at a big hospital like Wake Med, or at Duke or UNC, it's a regular occurence. When I used to work in Charlotte, it was.

    Do not administer medical attention to the individual until he has cooperated with the authorities. "Help us help you."

    That is not particularly true. He could have been threatned or anything. Why people always have to think the worst of people....LAMES
