CLEARFIELD — An 18-year-old man was hospitalized Friday night after he was shot twice following some kind of confrontation involving multiple people, police say.

Dispatchers received multiple 911 calls shortly after 10 p.m. reporting a shooting that had just occurred near 25 E. 1800 South in Clearfield, with callers reporting one male had been shot and a group of teens were seen fleeing the area.

"Officers from Clearfield Police Department and various neighboring police agencies quickly arrived and contacted an 18-year-old male with two gunshot wounds to his lower extremities. This male was transported to a local hospital by ground ambulance and later air lifted to another area hospital for emergency surgery. The victim is in stable condition and expected to survive," Clearfield police said in a statement.

After arriving on scene, police set up a containment in the area of the shooting to search for those involved and put out a "reverse 911 call" to alert residents in the immediate area to shelter in place. That order remained in effect for about an hour as officers continued to comb the area.

"A search of the area and tips from the public led to three juveniles being detained in relation to this incident. All three juveniles were located in the nearby area. Investigators are still collecting information to identify the person responsible for the shooting," police said.

No arrests have been made and police say there is "no indication" of any ongoing threats to the public. Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 801-525-2800.
