Deputies have detained the occupants of a vehicle seen leaving the scene.
An 18-year-old man was shot and injured at about 10 a.m. Dec. 21 at 36 Bressler Lane in Palm Coast.
The victim was visiting a friend at the house and was outside when the shooting happened, according to a Flagler County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman.
The friend saw the suspect's vehicle and called 911, and deputies were able to stop the car and detain the its occupants for questioning.
The victim was taken to a trauma center by helicopter for treatment, according to a Flagler County Sheriff's Office news release. He appeared to have one gunshot wound to the abdomen.
Deputies believe the shooting was not random and was not a domestic-related shooting, and believe that they have everyone involved in custody, according to the spokeswoman.
The firearm has not yet been recovered, but the Sheriff's Office is seeking a search warrant to search the vehicle.
“This is an isolated incident and all parties involved were quickly apprehended,” Sheriff Rick Staly said in the news release. “There is no immediate threat to the community. Our deputies did a great job in quickly tracking down the suspect vehicle and our detectives are thoroughly investigating all of the evidence, conducting interviews, and requesting the necessary search warrants.”
