According to Everett Police, a group of teens were playing basketball at the school when another group of between 15-20 teens came up to them.
An altercation between the two groups turned physical, and then one of the basketball players was shot at about 6:30 p.m.
The suspect fled the scene. He is described as a skinny, bald male in his late teens, wearing jeans and a blue T-shirt.
Police arrived on the scene with canine units, one of which located a handgun in a neighborhood nearby, Everett Police spokesman Aaron Snell said.
The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office sent its helicopter to aid in the search, but it later was forced to turn back by bad weather.
The victim, also described as being in his late teens, was transported to Providence Regional Medical Center, Snell said, where his condition remained unknown Saturday evening.
