A man gets out to fix his over heating car and ends up shot in the face.

It all happened around midnight when Bryan Withrow says he pulled over on the side of the road when his car started to over heat on State Route 681 near Albany.

Withrow told the Athens County Sheriff's Office when he got out... he got shot in the face. Withrow says he could not tell who the person was.

Withrow was flown by helicopter to Columbus due to his injuries.

Deputies say there were multiple shotgun pellets. They also believe more than one shot was fired.

Sheriff Patrick Kelly says it is an isolated incident and not an issue of public safety.
