(AP) - Police say a man shot in the face Saturday at a northeast Omaha intersection walked about eight blocks for help.
 
Omaha police tell the Omaha World-Herald that 54-year-old Terry Hudson was outdoors just after midnight when he was shot.
 
Police Sgt. Owen Gregg says Hudson walked to a house a block to the west, and a person there called 911, but Hudson continued on. A trail of blood marked his path.
 
Officials say Hudson was soon taken in critical condition to Creighton University Medical Center. Police say his injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.
 
Gregg says it was not clear whether the assailant, fired while he was standing or from a vehicle. Police had not announced an arrest by midday Saturday.
