A man was shot around midnight Friday apparently while driving his car down West Temple.

The victim, Benjamin Hernandez, suffered a gunshot wound to his left shoulder area and was expected to be released from University Hospital Friday morning, a hospital spokesman said.

Police have no suspect in the shooting and could locate no shell casings or other evidence from the scene, according to Salt Lake Police Sgt. Jim Hill.

Hernandez told police he was driving southbound on West Temple near 900 South when his driver's side window exploded and he felt a pain in his left shoulder and side, Hill said.
