Teen injured in Evans shooting

Four teenagers were walking near 41st Street Road and Belmont Avenue when someone in a vehicle shot at them, according to police.

EVANS, Colo. — A 15-year-old boy was shot in the face in a drive-by shooting on Thursday night, according to the Evans Police Department (EPD).

No suspect was in custody in the shooting that happened about 6:30 p.m. Thursday near 41st Street Road and Belmont Avenue, police said. That's in a residential area and next to Green Meadows Open Space.

Evans Police said they're looking for a tan Nissan Sentra with no front license plate and no front hubcaps. Police said they don't think this is a random act.

On Thursday evening, four teenage boys were walking in the area when a vehicle drove past them and someone in the vehicle fired a single shot, EPD said in a news release.

One of the boys was hit and injured, and the other three fled and were later found safe, police said.

The injured boy was taken to a local hospital, and then was flown by helicopter by a trauma center in Denver. He was listed as stable. EPD didn't release more details on the boy's condition.

Anyone with information on the shooting can call Detective Brad Rodriguez at 970-339-2441. Tipsters can also contact Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477 or nocrimestoppers.com.
