There are not very many details being released at this time, but Lieutenant Jonathan Touchet says via a press release that someone fired shots at a home in the 1600 block of Green Street.

The victim, whose age has not been given, was taken to a hospital for help, and then ultimately transferred to another hospital for continued treatment.

Police who were patrolling in the area heard the noise, and they went to investigate.
