14-year old boy shot and injured in Surprise, Arizona

A 14-year old boy was shot and injured in the thigh, apparently after an argument with other juveniles, in Surprise, Arizona (in the Phoenix metro area).

From an article:
About 8:00 p.m., police responded to shots fired in the 14500 block of North 132nd Avenue and contacted several residents in the area, Sgt. Norm Owens said. Residents said there had been a large group of juveniles fighting and possible gunshots were heard, he said.
Police discovered several shell casings in the park area but did not find any juveniles there, he said.
A short time later, police received a call from the 14-year-old gunshot victim, who was located near the 14100 block of North West Grand Avenue, Owens said. The victim was found with a single gunshot wound to his upper left thigh and was transported by ambulance to Phoenix Children’s Hospital, he said.
He is in stable condition.  No arrests have yet been made.
