CORINTH – Police were releasing limited information about a shooting that occurred about 7 p.m. today in Corinth.

Corinth police Capt. Ralph Dance said the victim was a male, about 20 years old, but he would not identify him pending notification of all family members.

A suspect has been identified and is being sought, but Dance said he also could not be identified at this time, and may in fact be a juvenile.

Additional officers were called to the scene of the shooting on John Street after some family members of both the victim and the potential suspect confronted each other.

More information will be provided as it becomes available.
