A boy was shot Thursday afternoon in St. Paul, according to police; fortunately, he is expected to survive.

At about 4:20 p.m., St. Paul police responded to a report of multiple shots fired near Sims Avenue and Edgerton Street.

A witness told officers that they heard between 15 and 20 gunshots and saw two males flee the scene in an SUV. Soon after, police learned that a juvenile with a gunshot wound was dropped off at Regions Hospital by a private citizen.

Police recovered more than 15 bullet casings in an alley near the 500 block of Sims Avenue, the department said.
