A Rockford man ended up in the hospital early Tuesday morning after getting shot while walking his dog.
The man told officers he was walking his dog when a 40 - 50 year old man pointed a handgun at him and asked, "Whatcha got?"
The two men got into a scuffle which ended when the dog walker was shot in the leg. The victim was able to get himself to Swedish American Hospital. The injuries were not life threatening and nothing was stolen.
