Officials are investigating a shooting at a park in Tempe.

The incident happened just after 7:30 p.m. at a park next to Kyrene Del Norte Elementary School near McClintock Drive and Guadalupe Road.

Tempe police said an 18-year-old male was shot in the arm and was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

"He shot probably six bullets,” said witness Scott Michaels. “It looked like the first couple hit the ground and it was the 5th bullet before anyone started running.”

Officials are searching the area for a possible suspect, described as a white or Hispanic male, approximately 20 years old and was wearing all black clothing.
