The victim, James Shields, 18, was transported to an area hospital with what are believed to be non-life threatening wounds.
HPD Major Assaults & Family Violence Division Officers B. Salazar and B. Godoy reported:
Mr. Shields was with two other males in the parking lot of an apartment complex at the above address when a suspect fired shots at the group, striking Shields one time in the chest. The shooting may have been a result of an earlier altercation between the suspect and one of the males. Paramedics transported Shields to the hospital.
