A person was shot in Englewood Park Thursday evening following a fight between two groups of young people, the Salem Police Department said Friday.
Police have provided scant details about the shooting, but said the person who was shot at 1260 19th St. N.E. is being treated at Salem Health. Salem police Lt. Treven Upkes said investigators didn’t want to release additional details, like the person’s gender or condition, because of the ongoing investigation.
Thursday’s night shooting marks more than a year after a 16-year-old McNary High School student was shot and killed in Englewood Park.
