A 17-year-old boy suffered a single gunshot wound to his leg Thursday near Aberdeen High School.
Detective Sergeant Art Laur tells us they were called to the area of East Second and North H Streets just after 4 p.m. to the report of a shooting near the high school. They found one victim and another juvenile at the scene, neither would cooperate with the investigation.

Witnesses reported the teens were walking on Second Street when they were approached by a green-colored vehicle, possibly a Chevrolet Blazer or similar vehicle. Laur said witnesses reported multiple gunshots as the vehicle approached, and the juveniles began to run. The vehicle fled the area and has not been located.
