Knoxville (WVLT) - Authorities are looking for a suspect in a late-night shooting in East Knoxville.

Authorities say someone walking in a neighborhood on Parview Avenue, near the Spruce Street intersection found the 17-year-old Wednesday night.

He had been shot in the chest and in the arm.

Police believe the shooting may have happened elsewhere, but the victim somehow ended up here.

Officials say the young man was coherent when emergency workers took him to UT Medical Center. There's no word on his condition.

Police say they are interviewing any potential witnesses, and say right now, they do not have a suspect in custody.
