Police are investigating a shooting in Queen Village that left an 18-year-old man hospitalized and four parked cars spotted with bulletholes Monday evening.

A hail of gunfire on 4th Street near Christian around 6:20 p.m. left the man wounded once in his right leg.

Police found 10 shell casings on 4th Street, and Chief Inspector Scott Small said cops found the victim around the corner on Christian Street when they arrived on the scene. 

The man was taken to Jefferson University Hospital, and was listed in stable condition as of 7:45 p.m., Small said.

The man told police he was walking in the area when he heard gunfire and realized that he was wounded.

He did not provide police with a description of the suspect, and there were no witnesses.
