The latest shooting happened around 5:20 p.m. Friday in the 400 block of North Lee Street, just two blocks west of Downtown Bloomington. Lee Street was blocked off as police investigated but there have been no arrests, police said.

The teenage juvenile male victim suffered injuries that did not appear to be life threatening, police said. He was taken to the hospital.
