BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - Biloxi police continue to follow leads from witnesses into Monday night’s shooting of two teens at John Henry Beck Park.

Sgt. O’Neil Adams says officers found a 19-year-old woman suffering from a non-life threatening gunshot wound. About 10 minutes later, Adams says a Biloxi hospital reported a 14-year-old had been brought in, also suffering from a gunshot wound.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1yHnjj3 ) authorities are not releasing the identities of the two as the case remains under investigation.

Officials believe a large crowd was at the park when the shooting occurred but left before officers arrived.

Lt. Christopher De Back says no arrests have been made but he says authorities are working on a number of leads.
