PASADENA (CNS) - Police today were seeking the public's help in locating a gunman and possibly another suspect who wounded a 10-year-old boy playing near the Villa Parke area of Pasadena, leaving the child with potentially life-threatening injuries.
The gunshots were fired near Parke Street and Garfield Avenue at about 3 p.m. Sunday, according to Pasadena police.
Two men exited a vehicle and fired shots toward the area where the child was playing, Pasadena Police Department Lt. Carolyn Gordon told City News Service.

There is nothing to indicate the 10-year-old was the intended victim and the motive remains unknown.”
