KING CITY — King City Police Department is investigating a shooting that injured a juvenile Saturday night.

On April 15, at about 8:43 p.m., officers responded to a report of a shooting in the 600 block of Bishop Street, where there was a celebration happening in the carport area with more than 100 people in attendance.

According to police, a vehicle passed by the residence and “words were exchanged” between someone at the celebration and passengers in the vehicle. The vehicle continued down the street before turning around and coming back. 

As it passed the residence a second time, an occupant inside the vehicle fired several shots in the direction of the celebration, police said.

A juvenile was hit, suffering a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the lower leg, and transported to the hospital for treatment.

“At this time, the investigation is ongoing and no further details are being released,” police said.
