A 10-year-old boy was shot multiple times while playing outside a home in Pasadena Sunday afternoon, officials said.
Police received multiple reports of shots fired in the area of 300 Parke Street around 3 p.m., Pasadena Police Department Lt. Carolyn Gordon said.
They arrived to find a boy with multiple gunshot wounds, and rushed the juvenile victim to a hospital with injuries that were life-threatening, according to Gordon.
It’s unclear who shot the child or what transpired leading up to the gunfire.
Police are looking for at least three male suspects and a light-colored sedan, but a more detailed description was not available, Gordon said.
The lieutenant said investigators haven’t yet determined whether the child was the intended target in the shooting.
The incident drew a large police response to the neighborhood, with a sizable area surrounding the home closed off with police tape.
No further details were immediately available.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Pasadena Police Department at 626-744-4507.
