WYOMING, Mich. (AP) - Police are searching for whoever shot a Grand Rapids-area high school student in the leg as he left basketball practice.

Superintendent Dave Britten says the Godfrey-Lee High School student was shot Wednesday night as he was leaving the Wyoming school. The teen and three other varsity basketball players heard multiple gunshots and ran back into the school. The victim realized in the gym that he had been shot in the leg.

Officers set up a perimeter around the school and searched the area with a police dog. School officials are reviewing security camera footage.

Britten says the victim was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive.

Britten says the basketball players aren’t kids who get into trouble.
