EVERETT, Wash. -- Everett police detectives are investigating a weekend shooting outside an elementary school that injured a male teen.

Officers found the teen on the basketball court with a gunshot wound Saturday night. Police spokesman Aaron Snell said Sunday that no arrests had been made.

Witnesses told police the victim was with a group playing basketball when another group of 15 to 20 males in their late teens came to the court.

Police say a verbal argument turned physical, and the teen was shot.

As officers arrive, the second group of teens left the area.

Officers searched for the gunman, and found a handgun in a nearby apartment complex.

It's unclear whether the gun was used in the shooting.

Snell said Sunday the teen survives but did not elaborate on his condition.
