As an off-duty police officer approached three men who were carrying a 17-year-old shooting victim in Olney, they dropped the teen to the ground - then ran into a nearby house, police said.

So much for brotherly love.

The off-duty officer called to report gunshots in the area of 2nd Street near Linton around 8:45 p.m. and eventually found the victim along with three other men, police said.

After dropping the teen to the ground, the trio ran into a house on Spencer Street near 2nd. The men who were carrying the victim are likely his friends and were not considered suspects Tuesday night, police said.

The house was being held for investigation, and the men were being interviewed by police in the Northwest Detective Division while the victim underwent surgery at the Albert Einstein Medical Center.

The teen was wounded once in his right thigh, and was listed in stable condition as of 10 p.m.

Police said the victim was initially uncooperative, and would not provide information on who shot him or why. 

A description of the suspect was not immediately available.

No arrests were made.
