ESCONDIDO (CNS) - A 14-year-old boy was recovering Saturday from a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the chest he sustained while walking on an Escondido street, police said.
The teen told police he was walking alone in the 600 block of North Escondido Boulevard about 9:45 p.m. Friday when he heard gunshots, felt pain on the right side of his chest, and then walked home, according to Escondido police Lt. Craig Carter. Police said the boy did not see where the shots came from.
A family member took the boy to a hospital to be treated for a gunshot wound, which police did not believe to be life-threatening, Carter said.
Police asked anyone with information about the shooting to contact them at (760) 743-8477, or to call Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477. An anonymous tip can also be placed on the Escondido Police Department's website at police.escondido.org .
