By Michelle Provencher

City police are investigating a Friday night shooting which landed a teen in the hospital.

Wilmington P-D say officers arrived at the 600 block of Van Buren Street around 10 p.m. after receiving a call reporting a subject shot.

The victim is a 17-year-old male suffering a gunshot wound to his left leg.

Investigators say the victim was walking outside when the unknown gunman approached him. Their words led to blows, and finally the suspect shot the teen before taking off.

The victim was transported by ambulance to Christiana Hospital.

The suspect is described as tall with a dark complexion.

The investigation is ongoing.
