Waco police Monday were continuing to investigate a weekend shooting in East Waco that injured a 16-year-old and are looking for the shooter they believe targeted the teen.
Officers responded around 3:15 p.m. Sunday to the report of a shooting at the Estella Maxey public housing complex in the 1000 block of Delano.
When officers arrived they saw a 16-year-old male bleeding from a gunshot wound to the leg, police spokeswoman Cierra Shipley said. Officers took measures to stop the bleeding until the boy could be transported to a local hospital for treatment, Shipley said, adding that the boy was alert and talking.
She said witnesses were on the scene when police arrived. Shipley said investigators believe this was a targeted shooting, and police were continuing to search for a suspect Monday.
