CLEVELAND (AP) — Shots fired into a Cleveland home have critically injured a 10-year-old boy asleep in an upstairs bedroom.
Cleveland police report a 17-year-old girl was wounded in another drive-by shooting just blocks away several hours earlier. A police spokesman says it hasn’t been determined whether the two shootings are connected.
The 10-year-old was shot in the head and chest shortly after 1 a.m. Thursday on the city’s east side. He was taken to a hospital where he underwent surgery. Three other children in the home weren’t injured.
The 17-year-old girl was outside a home when she was shot in the face and abdomen shortly before 10 p.m. Wednesday.
No suspects have been arrested.
