Police said on Wednesday at around 7:30 p.m., a 17-year-old male arrived at a Lincoln hospital with a grazing gunshot wound to his left side. 

Further investigation revealed the teen and some friends had met up with a group of individuals at Seacrest Field, 7300 A St., flowing a feud on social media between the groups.
