City police were investigating an afternoon non-fatal shooting in Hampden.

Police said officers were called to the 3700 block of Hickory Ave., about two blocks north of The Avenue, at about 3:30 p.m. for a report of shots fired. A female, who age was not immediately disclosed, had been shot in the foot, police said.

The shooting is the first non-police shooting in Hampden since Aug. 2009, according to data posted to the city's OpenBaltimore website. The last homicide in Hampden was in July 2010, when John Sandy was fatally beaten in the 3500 block of Elm Ave.

Police didn't give any details on a motive or other circumstances about the incident.
