SUFFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Police found ski masks at the home of a 14-year-old who was shot in Suffolk this month, according to court documents.

A 15-year-old called Suffolk police around 10:45 p.m. on May 6 and reported that his younger brother had been shot in the mouth. Police arrived at the home and found a 14-year-old with a gunshot wound to his face that “did not appear to be self inflicted,” court documents state.

Police think the shooting might have happened at the teenager’s home in the 400 block of Smith Street. Officers found a pool of blood and “what appeared to be teeth” in the front door and on the front porch of the apartment, as well as five ski masks at the home, according to court documents.

The 14-year-old was taken to the Children’s Hospital of the Kings Daughters. His injuries were not life-threatening.

No one has been arrested in connection to this shooting and the investigation is ongoing, according to Suffolk officials.
