Police are investigating the shooting of a juvenile male in southeast Salem Monday morning.
Salem Police responded to the 1200 block of Lancaster Drive Southeast around 8:30 a.m. and found the teen suffering from a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.
He was taken to Salem Hospital for treatment, according to Lt. Treven Upkes of the Salem Police Department.
Officials said they don't believe the shooting occurred where the teen was found. The investigation is ongoing.
Upkes said there is no ongoing threat to the public at this time.
No information on a suspect or motive was available as of 10:45 a.m. Monday.
Houck Middle School was placed on lockdown while Salem police officers cleared the scene and determined there was no direct threat to the school. The lockdown has since been lifted.
