The York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting that sent a 17-year-old boy to the hospital Tuesday night.

Not a lot of details have been released, but authorities said it happened just before 7 p.m. in the 100 block of Cool Court in Yorktown.

Investigators would only say the teen was taken to the hospital “in stable condition.”

“This is very early in the Investigation and details are limited,” according to a Facebook post from the sheriff’s office.

Authorities are asking anyone with information about the incident to call the Crime Line at 888-LOCK-U-UP or the sheriff’s office’s FB Tip Line at 757-890-4999.
