Man shot in leg in Belle Glade

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting incident that left one man wounded on Friday.

The incident happened at approximately 9:29 p.m. on Aug. 21 in the 300 block of Northwest 11th St., reports Teri Barbera, Palm Beach County’s media relations director.

According to information released by the sheriff’s office, a male victim arrived at Lakeside Medical Center with a gunshot wound to the leg. After being treated for the injury doctors said was non life-threatening, the man provided very little information to investigators, and was uncooperative.
