Teen injured in shooting at school basketball court

EVERETT, Wash. - A shooting at an elementary school basketball court left one teen in the hospital, and police searching for a gunman.

Shots rang out just after 6:30 p.m. Saturday at Horizon Elementary School in Everett, and when police arrived, they found a teenager who had been shot.

Prior to the shooting, a group of 15-20 teenagers arrived at the court where another group of teens was already playing basketball, police say.

A verbal argument between the groups turned physical, and one teen from the first group playing basketball was shot.

After the gun was fired, the teens scattered. Snohomish County Sheriff's Office launched their helicopter to help track down suspects, and several teens possibly associated with the shooting were taken in by officers for questioning.

A gun was recovered by a K-9 unit at a nearby apartment complex, though police say it has not been confirmed that the gun was used in the assault.

No arrests have been made. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call 911 or the Everett Police Department TIP LINE at (425) 257-8450.
