INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A 16-year-old received minor injuries after an accidental shooting Friday morning on the west side of Indianapolis.

Just after 6:30 a.m., Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers were called to a shooting in the 1000 block of Laclede Street. That’s a neighborhood off of Washington Street, a few blocks north of Stout Field.

Officers arrived and found the injured teenager, who had minor injuries and declined treatment at a hospital.

“The investigation revealed this was an accidental, self-inflicted injury,” IMPD Public Information Officer Lt. Shane Foley said in a release.

No other information was immediately available.
