A juvenile was shot in the face today in the 2000 block of Newport Avenue in the Meadowview area, police reported.
The shooting may have been gang motivated, said Sgt. Norm Leong, police spokesman.
As of 2:45 p.m., officers were still on the scene investigating, but it appears that an earlier fight may have led to the incident, Leong said.
The victim was shot, perhaps with shotgun, when he emerged from a home later.
The wounds are not believed to be life-threatening.
