The intersection is near a busy parking lot where runners park their cars before taking to the track along the lakes.
A WBRZ crew at the scene recorded video of the victim being put into the back of an ambulance.
Police said the victim was found in a vehicle, shot in the neck but is in stable condition.
Investigators say a dive team is now on scene searching for evidence in the LSU Lakes.
