Cops and paramedics rushed to the shooting victim . He had gone to a friend's house on 2nd Avenue for help not long after a shot was heard. 18-year-old Raheem Griffin had a gunshot wound in his calf, but couldn't or wouldn't tell detectives much about the shooter. The teen was wounded about 8:30 this morning.
They called him uncooperative and described the leg wound as not life threatening. Nearby West Side Elementary School went on a real lock down for the first time since it opened in a neighborhood with a history of gun trouble.
20 minutes later the school was back in business and the lock down lifted after a meeting with police. Parents we talked with think the school is safe. West Side can lock all doors at once electronically. Teachers with students outside can get them into the building with a special key. The principal says the lock down worked as planned today.
