Sheriff’s detectives investigating shooting.

At about 7:00 am this morning deputies responded to a report of a person shot in the 1800 block of Martinique Drive in Center Point. The caller reported that he had been shot and then disconnected the call.

Deputies located the 17-year-old victim in a wooded area behind The Point Apartments. He had suffered a gunshot wound to the leg. The victim was transported to an area hospital with non- life threatening injuries.

The victim first didn’t cooperate then reported that he had been walking through the wooded area when an unknown person shot him.
