Chico Police are investigating an overnight shooting that sent a college student to the hospital.

Just before 2 a.m. Thursday this morning, police were called out to the 500 block of W. 8th Street where they found a home and two vehicles hit by shotgun pellets.

Police say a gunshot victim arrived at Enloe Medical Center a short time later with injuries consistent with being shot by a shotgun to his head and right shoulder.

They say the victim is a 19-year-old Butte College student who said he was walking to a friend's house when he heard a loud explosion and then realized he had been shot.

His injuries are non-life threatening and we don't yet know his name.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call Chico Police.
