Investigators with the Picayune Police Department are working a case involving a juvenile who shot into a group of other juveniles.

Chief Freddy Drennan said the incident occurred Sunday just after 4 p.m. at the Grande Oak Apartments. At that time an altercation involving a group of juveniles occurred at the Grande Oak Apartments. During the altercation a 13-year-old male produced a firearm and shot into the group of juveniles, striking three people in the their legs.

The injured juveniles were transported to Highland Community Hospital before being airlifted to a New Orleans area medical facility. Drennan said none of those who were shot suffered life threatening injuries.

Investigators are still working with family members, who Drennan said are working with the department 100 percent, to locate the individual who shot the firearm.

Drennan declined to provide additional information at this point in an effort to quell the situation.

“We’re concerned what the 13-year-old will do at this point,” Drennan said. “We don’t want him hurt or hurting anyone else.”

Drennan said he is working with the District Attorney’s office to determine if the suspect will be charged as an adult.
