Crime Stoppers needs your help to identify the suspects in a shooting that occurred in the Barton Heights neighborhood.

At approximately 5:19 p.m. on May 1st, multiple police units responded to the Norrell Elementary School Annex at 201 W. Graham Road for an active shooter situation. It was reported that three suspects forced entry into the building and were possibly still on-scene. When units arrived, they quickly set a perimeter and cleared the building.

One person was found suffering from a non-life threatening gunshot wound in the building. The victim was transported to a local hospital where she was treated and released. No other injuries were reported.

During the investigation, a red Metropack backback was found on the premises. Police are asking anyone who may have seen this backpack to call Crime Stoppers.
