The victim, an 18-year-old, was conscious when police arrived. Two ambulances and an air ambulance were dispatched to the scene within minutes of the crime.

He was shot in the groin and in the arm, De Limburger wrote. Witnesses said they heard three or four gunshots, the newspaper said.

He was transported to a hospital in serious condition, police stated.

Nobody was reported as being in custody. Police asked for anyone with information in the case to contact them directly.
