Teen shot at Freedom Park in Payne City

A teenage male was shot in the shoulder around 3 p.m. Thursday according to Macon Police.

They said he is being treated at a local hospital.

Residents told 13WMAZ they believe the teen was shot around the gym.

Vince Carter's father has lived near the park for 15 years. While at his father's, Carter said you can frequently hear gunshots.

"There be a lot of young guys up there. Once they get up there and get in the crowd, it gets real wild up in that area," said Carter.

Police patrol the area often, but Carter said it needs to be increased.

Police said they are still investigating.
