Police still investigating Sunday shooting in abandoned factory

ANDERSON — Police still have no suspects in connection with a shooting early Sunday morning.

The teenage boy who was shot in the leg while at a party has been treated and released from the hospital, but police are no closer to understanding why he was shot, Anderson Police Department spokesman Joel Sandefur said Monday.

The party and shooting occurred at an abandoned factory building in the 1100 block of West 16th Street at about 1:30 a.m. The reason for the gathering at the abandoned structure is still unclear.

According to witnesses, the juvenile received the injury when someone opened fire from a crowd gathered in the building.

The boy, age not available, was transported to St. Vincent Anderson Regional Hospital to be treated. The bullet passed through and exited his leg, missing any bone or major arteries, according to police reports.

Anyone with information can report it anonymously through Crime Stoppers by calling (765) 649-8310.
