Officers were dispatched to the above location regarding the victim of a shooting. The victim, a 16 year old male, sustained a minor laceration above his eye.  He and another subject were inside of a garage when two suspects, males with hoods, entered the garage in search of an item.  The victim was struck with the firearm causing the injury.  He was not shot.  Both suspects fled.  One of the suspects discharged a firearm randomly in the neighborhood.  No one was struck by the gunfire.  A vehicle and residence was hit with one of the rounds.  The victim was very uncooperative.  This was not a random act and the motivation is unclear.
