(West Plains) – The West Plains Police Department was called to the scene of a shooting that occurred last night at the 1700 block of Route BB.
After receiving a call of a shooting at 1760 St. Route BB at 10:21 PM Tuesday night, officers arrived on the scene to find that a 15-year-old boy, later identified as Dylan Dalton of the home, had been shot in the leg by an unknown assailant.
The boy was taken from the scene to Ozarks Medical Center by ambulance.
A suspect has not been developed at this time, however authorities are searching for a black or red 4×4 truck with Missouri plates with KC lights on the top of the truck.
At this time it is unclear whether it was an accidental or intentional shooting. Incidentally, the home where the shooting took place is the same one that a 14-year-old was shot and killed at earlier this year.
