A 16-year-old boy was shot in the chest Monday afternoon at a skate park on El Dorado Street in Stockton.
The shooting was in a parking lot at the skate park and the victim was able to get himself to a residential area about a block away where an ambulance was called, according to Stockton police.
The teen was transported to an area hospital in critical condition, police said. Monday evening, a police representative said the youth was expected to survive.
Police do not have a description of the shooter and police spokesperson Officer Joe Silva said witnesses were not being cooperative.
