A 14-year-old boy was rushed into surgery after he was wounded in a shooting in Anaheim on Saturday afternoon, officials said.

The attack took place about 5:30 p.m. in the 3200 block of Orange Avenue, just west of Western Avenue, Anaheim Police Department Sgt. Shane Carringer said.

The victim was walking with two other juveniles when a dark car, possible a gray sedan, approached with four male occupants inside, the sergeant said.

Shots were fired from the car, striking the young victim.

Paramedics took the wounded teen to a hospital, where he was rushed into surgery, Carringer said. He was expected to survive.

No further details, including suspect descriptions, were available. Investigators suspected the shooting was gang related.
