Phoenix po­lice: Teenage boy shot in leg re­mains hos­pi­tal­ized

Yuma Sun - - NEWS -

PHOENIX — Po­lice in Phoenix say a ju­ve­nile boy who was shot in one of his legs is still hos­pi­tal­ized and it’s been de­ter­mined that he’s 14 years old.

Of­fi­cers re­sponded to 99th Av­enue just south of Lower Buck­eye Road about 4:30 p.m. Mon­day about an in­jured per­son near a west Phoenix park.

They found the boy in the road­way with a sig­nif­i­cant leg in­jury.

Po­lice didn’t iden­tify the ju­ve­nile, but say it’s be­lieved the leg in­jury may have been an ac­ci­den­tal or even self-in­flicted.

De­tec­tives con­tinue to search for ev­i­dence to de­ter­mine if there is re­lated crim­i­nal con­duct.

Po­lice say the teen re­mains un­co­op­er­a­tive with in­ves­ti­ga­tors.
