Multiple 911 calls reported gunshots in the parking lot of the Admiral Apartments on Mission 66 at Grove. According to radio communication, an individual was shot multiple times in the legs. Responding to the incident were a sizable number of police officers, a fire medic unit, and a rescue team. Although the victim was struck multiple times in the leg, their injuries do not seem to be life-threatening.
