 Original:

At 6:57 PM on July 2, 2019, APD Dispatch received reports of a shooting. Initial indications are that a group of juveniles were at the basketball court at Williwaw Elementary School when an altercation occurred. A male pulled out a gun, fired several rounds, and struck a male teenager at least once. Everyone involved ran from the scene.

The male victim collapsed on the 4400-block of San Ernesto; a witness at that location called police. The victim has been transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

There have been no arrests at this time and there is no further suspect description to release. Williwaw’s playground at 1200 San Antonio Street will be shut down while the scene is processed.
