A 17-year-old boy was been shot and wounded near the Brockton High School gym, where winter sports tryouts were being held, and police are looking for a suspect.
School Superintendent Matthew Malone told reporters outside the high school Wednesday evening that the victim dropped out of the school a year ago.
The Brockton Enterprise reports that witnesses said they heard five or six shots about 5 p.m. No one else was injured.
The newspaper reports that the victim was carried down the stairs of the school on a stretcher and taken to a hospital.
The police department did not immediately release details.
