July 28—A teenager was shot at a Leesburg apartment complex during a fight Tuesday, a Leesburg police official said.

Police said they received calls about 11:15 a.m. regarding a man with a handgun making threats toward residents in one of the units of Lake Harris Cove Apartments.

Minutes later, callers told police that a fight started in the courtyard of the complex and one person had been shot, police spokesman Lt Joe Iozzi said.

The victim, who police didn’t immediately identify, went back into his apartment after being shot in the upper torso. He was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center, Iozzi said. His condition is unknown.

“He was in his mid teens,” Iozzi said. “I’d say since he was transported by grounded ambulance he wasn’t suffering from life-threatening injuries.”

Two persons of interest, whose names haven’t been released, were taken into custody, Iozzi said.

“The case is still ongoing and we’re still talking with witnesses and examining the area,” he said.
