Police say the victim and others involved were all juveniles

A Carbondale juvenile is recovering after being shot during an argument Tuesday.

Carbondale Police say they were notified of a shooting victim being taken to Memorial Hospital just before 6:00 yesterday (Tuesday) evening.

Investigators say the shooting happened during a confrontation in the 200 block of Lake Heights Avenue, and that the juveniles involved knew each other.

They say they've identified a potential suspect, but because the suspect is a juvenile, no other information is being released.

Anyone with information is being asked to call Carbondale Police, or their CrimeStoppers line at 618-549-COPS.
