A concerned mother showed up at the Vicksburg Police Department to report her son had been shot.

A few minutes later paramedics were dispatched to the lobby of the PD to attend to a 16-year-old male with a gunshot wound to the left leg. The injury was not life-threatening and the youth did not appear to be in distress.

Paramedic 40 and Engine 6 responded to the call. Paramedic 40 transported the youth to a medical facility for treatment.

The mother indicated the shooting was intentional and may have stemmed from a disagreement in the neighborhood.

The Vicksburg Daily News will follow up with the VPD once more information is made available to the public.
