Darrington Lauriano, Jr., 21, of San Juan, San Pedro, has been treated and released from the San Pedro Polyclinic after he was shot in the shoulder, with the bullet exiting though his back. The incident occurred at about 9:30 last night.

Lauriano, who is well-known to police, reported that he was walking home on Sandpiper Street from the direction of Pescador Drive toward the San Juan area when he heard a loud bang that sounded like a gunshot, and realized that he had been shot.

People in the area who were alerted by the gunshot took him to the San Pedro Polyclinic, where doctors treated him. None of his vital organs were hit, and he was released that same night.

Police have launched an investigation, but no one has yet been arrested.
