No arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing, Everett police spokesman Aaron Snell said.
Police have heard reports that the shooting was gang-related, but it is too early to draw any conclusions, Snell said.
A group of teenagers was playing basketball on Saturday about 6:30 p.m. when another group of teens approached them. A fight broke out, leading to gunfire.
The boy’s injuries are not believed to be life-threatening. Several young people who were detained at the scene on Saturday later were released.
The suspect is described as a skinny, bald teen. He wore jeans and a blue T-shirt. The handgun was recovered at the scene.
No additional details were released Monday.
