MARSHALL, Texas (KSLA) — Three children are recovering from gunshot wounds. And police believe those who are responsible also are juveniles.

The gunfire occurred about 12:45 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 3 in the 1200 block of James Farmer Street, authorities say. That’s less than a quarter mile northwest of the Wiley College campus.

Officers who responded to the call found a wounded girl nearby. Two boys showed up at Christus Good Shepherd Medical Center-Marshall, a hospital about a half mile east of the shooting scene, seeking treatment for gunshot wounds.

Authorities said their wounds are not life-threatening.

“Preliminary investigation indicates that the actors were also juveniles,” says a statement released by the city. “The Marshall Police Department is working to identify all parties involved in this incident.”
