HOUSTON (October 7, 2013)--A 13-year-old boy who was a bystander during a disturbance that started as he visited friends at an apartment complex in Houston was in critical condition Monday, police spokeswoman Jodi Silva said.
The boy’s name and other details about his condition and injury weren’t released Monday.
No arrests have been made.
The boy was with some other people Sunday night watching a fight between two teenagers when someone handed one of the two teens a pistol.
The teenager opened fire into the crowd, striking the boy, and then fled.
Houston police are trying to determine what prompted the fight.
