Ames teen shot in chest, police say

AMES – An Ames teen was shot in the chest, police say, and an apartment building got a bullet, too.

On August 16, 2022 at 9:46 P.M. Ames Police were notified of a shooting that occurred in the parking lot at 1300 Coconino Rd. Shortly after this initial call, officers received a call from Mary Greeley Medical Center reporting that a male arrived at the hospital with an apparent gunshot wound to the chest.

The sixteen-year-old male was treated and released from the hospital. Officers recovered evidence to include a bullet that entered a nearby apartment building. The case remains under investigation but there does not appear to be a continued threat to the general public.

Anyone with information or potential video relating to this incident is encouraged to contact the Ames Police Department
