A 17-year-old boy suffered a minor gunshot wound just before 4 a.m. Monday, according to Lawrence police.

Officers were dispatched to Lawrence Memorial Hospital when hospital staff reported that a juvenile male patient had arrived at the emergency room with a gunshot wound, Patrick Compton, spokesman for the Lawrence Police Department, said via email Monday.

The shooting reportedly occurred in the 3300 block of Magnolia Circle, which is near 33rd Street and Ousdahl Road.

Compton said the boy was treated for a minor injury and released from the hospital.

The incident was still under investigation Monday, Compton said.

As of late Monday, police had made two arrests in connection with the incident, the Douglas County Jail booking log indicates. A 22-year-old Overbrook woman and a 20-year-old Greeley woman were being held without bond on suspicion of aggravated robbery and conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery.
