PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — A man was injured by flying debris during a shooting on Monday on 7th Street in Portsmouth.

Portsmouth police said the shooting happened around 3:54 p.m. near the 1000 block of 7th Street. They originally called the shooting a “gunshot wound incident,” but later said that the victim’s wound wasn’t from a bullet, but from flying debris.

His injuries were serious but not life-threatening, police said.
