CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A shooting in the area of Agnes and Laredo sent a teenager to the hospital last night.

Police at the scene say they got the call for a shooting on 18th street just after 9:30 p.m.

When they arrived, they found the 17-year-old victim with an injury to his lower back.

He wouldn't give officers any information about what happened.

“The victim said that it happened at a separate location, but we have proven that to be wrong,” Corpus Christi Police Lt. David Saldana said. “It did happen right here at this location.”

A witness who was questioned at the scene was able to give officers information on a possible suspect.
