Generic police tape

A 14-year-old boy was wounded early Monday morning in a shooting near the 4500 block of Port Lavaca Drive, police said.

Police officers responded to a report of a shooting in the neighborhood at 2:38 a.m. Monday, police spokeswoman Lauren Meaux said in a statement. Officers found the 14-year-old with a gunshot wound. The boy was transported to an area hospital for treatment, and the injury was not considered life-threatening, Meaux said.

The 4500 block of Port Lavaca Drive contains a gravel truck stop next to a Shell gas station. The entrance to the gas station faces U.S. 59.

There were no arrests made Monday morning and police are still investigating the shooting.
