According to police, no injuries were sustained as a result of the gunshot.

Mojica was the only victim transported to the hospital as a result of the disturbance.

He was transported to Tobey Hospital in Wareham, then transported to a Boston area hospital via Med-Flight.

The incident is currently under investigation by the Wareham Police Detective Division.
