"At this point we don't know exactly where the shot came from. We're reaching out to the community - if anybody saw somebody in the woods firing a handgun. We're reaching out to the community to get some tips on exactly how this happened," said Thompson.

Investigators said the shooting could have even been an accident. In any case they need people -even the shooter to come forward.
