The teens ran toward the corner of 11th Street and Corral Hollow Road when police drove up. Officers detained five of them at the corner and held another at gunpoint on the west side of the shopping center.
One of the teens told police that the gunman was one of two men in a large white pickup, and the men had asked for some marijuana. The driver reportedly fired two shots and then left. Police let the teens go, and later stopped a truck matching the description of the suspect truck at the corner of Keys and Kinsey ways, but it wasn’t the one involved in the shooting.
