A 16-year-old boy was injured in a shooting Wednesday while outside a home in North Little Rock, according to a report.

Officers said the shooting happened about 1:15 a.m. at a residence on West 18th or 19th streets, a couple blocks off Pike Avenue.

The victim was on the front porch with two friends when three shots were fired, according to a North Little Rock Police Department report. One bullet hit him in the right leg, just above the knee.

Witnesses said they tied a T-shirt around the boy's leg after he fell to the ground in pain.

The boy's father picked him up and drove him to Baptist Health Medical Center, where a nurse told officers the bullet went through a bone. The injury was not considered life-threatening.

The report states that no one saw a vehicle drive by or heard anyone near the house before the shooting.

No suspects had been named, and no arrests had been made at the time of the report.
