Police investigate shooting in West Palm

Police say a person was injured in a shooting in West Palm Beach Wednesday afternoon.

They say it happened along the 500 block of 21st Street shortly after 2:35.

The shooting happened near Pleasant City Elementary as students were being dismissed, but took place off school grounds, according to the school district. It said the school was able to get all students back inside safely.

"It was actually a little frightening. Some of my friends were crying but I was brave enough not to cry because I knew I was going to be OK and my mom was here to pick me up," said one student.

Police do not think anyone entered the campus.

Police ask anyone with information to call West Palm Beach Police or Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS.
