VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — A juvenile was found shot Thursday morning in Virginia Beach, police said.

According to a news release from police, officers were called to Back Acres Court — in the Wolfsnare Point area — around 9 a.m. and found a juvenile suffering from a gunshot wound.

Police said the juvenile was taken to the hospital with injuries described as non life-threatening.

Investigators were seen taking several bags of evidence and dusting for finger prints at a home.

Neighbors who spoke with 10 On Your Side said Thursday they did not hear any gunshots, but were shocked by the incident. Two brothers live at the home with their mother, and only one of whom is young enough to be considered a juvenile, according to neighbors.

“I can’t even imagine what could have happened … if the mother was home or maybe if it wasn’t meant for him,” said Cindi Novak. “It’s just so quiet back here.”

The circumstances of the shooting are unclear.
