SAN BERNARDINO – Detectives need the public’s help to identify the suspects involved in a San Bernardino shooting that injured a 13-year-old boy and narrowly missed a 3-year-old boy.
At around 1:17 p.m. Monday afternoon, deputies were dispatched to the 6900 block of Tippecanoe Avenue regarding a shooting. When deputies arrived they found the 13-year-old boy suffering to a gunshot wound to his buttocks. The boy was transported to a hospital and is undergoing surgery as a result of the gunshot wound.
Through investigations, the deputies learned that the 13-year-old boy, his brother, and a friend were standing in front of a home when shots were fired from a black 4-door sedan. Authorities believe that the three male subjects were the intended targets of the several rounds that were fired. At least one struck the boy in the buttocks and three additional rounds struck a home where a 3-year-old boy was napping in his bed. One of those bullets went through the window of the home, landing in a wall only inches from the sleeping child.
The incident remains under investigation, but at this time they have no information to identify the four or more suspects in the vehicle. Video surveillance from a nearby business captured the suspect vehicle fleeing the scene.
Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the Sheriff’s Central Station. If you choose to remain anonymous, call WeTip at 1-800-78-CRIME.
