Police report being called to the Garfield Teen Life Center around 4 p.m., after the teen walked inside with a wound to his shoulder.
Garfield High School sophomore Leo Cunningham tells the Capitol Hill Times he was on the football field when he heard what he counted as six gunshots.
Cunningham said he hears gunshots in the area every so often, but never this close before.
Like Cunningham, student Amahrie Ashley said he was moved to the school’s gymnasium following the shots, which he heard from inside the high school locker room.
Police appeared to be reviewing security footage inside the community center when the Capitol Hill Times arrived, seeking comment. A front desk clerk said a media manager is planning to later release what information it can.
