2 teens shot at Henry Beck Park in Biloxi

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

A 19-year-old woman, and a 14-year-old were both shot Monday night in Biloxi, and police believe there are witnesses who may have seen what happened.

Around 7pm, Biloxi Police were called to investigate a shooting at Henry Beck Park on Division Street. That's when they found the 19-year-old shot once. The wound wasn't life-threatening, but she was immediately taken to the hospital by ambulance.

Just 10 minutes later, police got a call that a 14 year old juvenile was brought to the hospital, also suffering from a gunshot wound.

Investigators are still collecting evidence and working to locate witnesses. They believe there was a large crowd present when the shooting occurred, and all those people left the scene before police arrived. They're asking if you have any information about the shooting to call Biloxi Police Department at (228) 392-0641 or Mississippi Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-877-787-5898.
