ORIGINAL STORY: 

A male is suspected of shooting a 16-year-old female in the leg early Thursday morning in Shawnee, Kan. 

Shawnee police reported at 1:30 a.m. Thursday to the Fox Run Apartments on the 7600 block of Goddard Street on a report of a shooting.

Teens were in the downstairs area of the apartment when the shooting occurred. Police say adults were sleeping upstairs in the apartment complex during the shooting. 

The suspect immediately fled from the scene on foot. Police used two dogs to try and track him down, but were unable to do so.

The victim was treated at a local hospital. She has since been released.

Police have received conflicting stories from witnesses at the scene.

"We aren't getting a straight story from anybody," said Dan Tennis, public information officer for the Shawnee Police Department.
