Kent County Sheriff Michelle LaJoye-Young says a 16-year-old boy was shot in the wrist and was released from a hospital, while a 40-year-old woman who was shot in the abdomen is in stable condition.

Police say the suspects started shooting from a stolen Hyundai and fled the scene in a Mercedes-Benz sedan.

Both vehicles have been recovered, but no one has been arrested.

LaJoye-Young says the groups of suspects may have been known to each other and as many as five people fired shots.

“This is a difficult thing for a school district to go through, a community to go through. So, we’re working very hard to make sure we’re bringing it to closure as soon as possible,” said Michelle LaJoye-Young, Kent County Sheriff.
