The man who was shot was immediately taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Crabtree did not say where the man was shot or the extent of his injuries. His identity was also not released, but Crabtree confirmed he is under the age of 18.

Additionally, just after 9:15 p.m., Crabtree said the person responsible for the shooting had been taken into custody. His identity was not given and he was also only identified as a male under the age of 18.

There were at least 23 evidence markers, which are typically used to denote the locations of shell casings, at the scene.
