A teenage boy has been injured in a shooting incident in Park City.

The shooting was reported just after 5 p.m. Wednesday at the Navajo Lakes Estates mobile home park, 501 E. 63rd St. North, a Sedgwick County emergency dispatch supervisor said.

“Mom just said he’s OK,” family friend Brandy Smith, speaking outside the family’s mobile home, said of the boy, who is a high school student.

The ambulance crew transporting the boy to a Wichita hospital for treatment reported via scanner radio communications that he had been shot in the arm with a 12-gauge shotgun. His injuries were not considered critical.

Park City police were investigating the incident Wednesday night.
