Lee County - - A man was shot by a ricocheting bullet Tuesday afternoon in Lee County. 

Investigators say John Delpercio was shooting into a burn pile Tuesday afternoon when a bullet or something from the pile ricocheted and hit him.

Delpercio tried to drive himself to the hospital, but got as far as the Leebsurg bypass and called an ambulance.

They picked him up there just after two. He's been released from Phoebe Hospital.
