Police are investigating a Feb. 6 shooting in Hollister in which a juvenile was injured by gunfire, and investigators are asking the public for help. 

Hollister Police responded to a report of shots fired about 11:36pm on the 100 block of Third Street, says a press release from the Hollister Police Department.
