CHULA VISTA (CNS) - A 17-year-old boy was hospitalized Wednesday with multiple gunshot wounds after two men barged into a Chula Vista home and one of them opened fire, police said.
The boy was shot in the face, neck and shoulder inside a home in the 300 block of Fifth Avenue about 10:40 p.m. Tuesday, Chula Vista police Lt. Don Redmond said in a statement.
The men - one of whom wielded a shotgun - entered the home through an unlocked front door and ordered everyone inside to get down on the living room floor, Redmond said. Besides the teenage boy, three adults and two small children were in the home at the time.
According to the lieutenant, the teenage boy was shot as he entered the living room from a back bedroom.
The boy was taken to UCSD Medical Center. The extent of his injuries was unclear.
The motive for the home invasion was not immediately clear. No monetary or property loss was reported.
Police said they were in their mid-20s and fled in an unknown direction.
Anyone with information about the shooting was urged to call Chula Vista police at (619) 691-5151.
