A teenager was allegedly shot at when he opened the front door of his residence on the 900 block of West Sixth Street on Friday, June 28.

According to the 16-year-old’s mother, who called police, no one was at the door and when he yelled gunfire came toward the house five seconds later. About six to eight shots were allegedly heard, the mother stated.

The son was allegedly being uncooperative, and the mother told the 911 dispatcher that “he’s not going to know anything, he’s tripping right now,” the log states.

No one was injured, and officers located at least one shell casing at the nearby railroad tracks.

Police are investigating the incident.
