Police in Warren are investigating after a teenager said he had to run for cover and dive onto the ground as shots rang out near his home in the Quinby Park area.

The 17-year-old boy told officers that he was near the driveway of his family’s home on the 1300 block of Jefferson St. SW Wednesday afternoon when he heard between eight and ten shots fly by him.

The teen said he instinctively ran and fell to the ground, bruising his wrist and side.

The report does not give any information about where the shots may have originated.

Police interviewed a neighbor who told them she heard five shots fired.

According to the report, officers looked at a video of the incident which shows dirt being kicked up on the other side of the street.

The teen refused medical treatment for his bruises.
