The shooting happened around 2:30 Tuesday afternoon in the 400 block of Henry Street, which is located off of Princess Place Drive.

According to officials, police were in the area on a suspicious person call when officers heard multiple gun shots. A ShotSpotter alert came in shortly afterwards. Eyewitnesses saw several people fleeing from the scene.

Officials say a 15-year-old male was injured in the shooting, but his injuries appear to be non-life threatening.

Police say two buildings were damaged in the shooting.
