A juvenile male was wounded in a shooting Friday night in the Glen Arvin area.

The victim went to Good Samaritan Hospital with two wounds, one in his leg and one in his forearm, Lt. Dean Marcum said.

The victim and the shooter got into a disagreement, and five or six shots were fired on Legacy Crossing, which is off Glen Arvin, Marcum said.

Police were looking for bullet casings in the area. Marcum said it is unclear who the shooter is, but the victim has provided some leads.
