A Saturday night shooting sent one teenager to the hospital in an incident that police say may be gang-related.
According to Calhoun Police Department reports:
A 15-year-old male was shot in the leg at the Calhoun Walmart, 450 W. Belmont Drive, sometime between 10:30 and 11 p.m., during an interaction with individuals thought to be from out of town.
“From what we’ve heard, he was part of an altercation with a group from Rome,” Calhoun Police Chief Pyle said, adding that the incident was possibly gang related.
The shooter had left the scene before police officers arrived.
Struck in a femoral artery, the injured teen was transported to Erlanger Medical Center in Chattanooga where he underwent surgery, and was alive as of Sunday morning.
“We will continue working this [case] through the day,” Pyle said Sunday. As of print deadline, no updates in the case had been available.
