Police are hoping to gather any information they can on a drive-by shooting that left a teenager paralyzed over the weekend.

The Oklahoma City Police Department reports that at approximately 1 a.m. March 3 a group of six friends left a high school party at the NE Oklahoma City Community and Cultural Center, 3815 N. Kelley. The group left the party in two different vehicles.

While driving to a nearby 7-Eleven a vehicle opened fire on the rear vehicle, striking a 16-year-old boy and a 17-year-old boy. The two were transported to a local hospital. The 17-year-old is permanently paralyzed following the shooting, police say the 16-year-old was treated for minor injuries.

The teens told police they are not associated with any gang activity and had no altercations at the party. They believe the suspect vehicle was either black or blue in color and pulled out from a Valero to follow them.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 405-235-7300.
