Found a rock dove with a broken wing

So my friend was telling me about a pigeon with a broken wing hanging around his apartment complex. After going to get him and getting a good look at him it appears the flight feathers on one wing have been ripped out that wing is broken I believe, he holds drooping down. I have a good deal of experience rescuing wild birds but never with broken wings, any advice?

what kind of fracture is it? if it is just out of place i would just splint it by wraping something around his body. last i heard birds kind of just fix their own broken wings.
you got battletoads?
