Wake County News

GARNER, N.C. (WNCN) — Garner police are investigating after a teen was shot and later hospitalized Thursday.

Police say the shooting happened in the 1800 block of Spring Drive shortly after 6 p.m. at the Legacy at 2000 complex.

A 16-year-old boy was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

“That is just terrible to hear. I live right across the street from Garner High School. I would never think of something like that to happen,” neighbor C.J. Lewis said. “I hear kids and see people walking around here all the time. I would never think of something like that to happen.”

Garner police say Garner Magnet High School was placed on lockdown for about 20-30 minutes because there was a football game going on when the shooting happened.

The suspect vehicle is described as a small, gray car that is possibly a Hyundai. Two males were seen leaving on foot and a female was in the car, police said.

Police have not made any arrests in the shooting.
