A 15-year-old boy was shot early Thursday in Boyle Heights, police said.
At about 2:30 a.m. officers responded to a shots fired call in the 1500 block of Pennsylvania Avenue and found the teen suffering from a gunshot wound to the head, the Los Angeles Police Department reported. Investigators told KTLA the shooting happened outside of a parked RV. A female neighbor directed police to the RV.
"It's to soon to tell, again we don't know what the intended target was until we get more statements from the witness," LAPD Capt. Alfred LaBrada told KTLA. " As you know we obviously can't get anymore information from the victim at this point but we're hoping the witness statement can give us more of a picture as to what happened."
The teen was taken to a local hospital in critical condition.
No suspect information was released.
Police ask anyone with information about the shooting to call 1-877-ASK-LAPD.
The investigation was continuing.
