PASADENA – A 4-year-old boy remained hospitalized in critical condition Saturday after he was shot along with two men inside a Summitt Avenue in the neighborhoods second shooting this week, authorities said.
The child was struck in the torso in the shooting, which was reported just before 9 p.m. in the 1800 block of Summitt Avenue, Pasadena police Lt. Jason Clawson said. A man in his 50s was shot in the arm, and another man in his 30s suffered a grazing wound. Neither of the men’s wounds were considered life-threatening.
Shots were fired from in front of the home, Lt. Ed Calatayud said.
“The the rounds penetrated a residential structure, a garage area, where theh victims were,” he said.
Clawson said the child was rushed to a hospital by a relative before officers arrived.
The relationship between the wounded boy and men was not clear.
No suspects were in custody, Calatayud said Saturday morning.
Police are looking for three suspects in connection with the attack. One was described as a Latino man in his 20s with a shaved head, wearing a white T-shirt and black shorts. The two other suspects were only described as Latinos wearing dark shirts and pants. No getaway car was seen.
The motive in the shooting was unknown as the investigation continued, Calatyud said.
The shooting took place on the same block where a teenage boy was wounded in a shooting Wednesday.
Lt. Tom Delgado said the teen was approached by an attacker and there was a brief exchange of words before the shooter opened fire. No suspect description was available.
The boy suffered minor injuries in the shooting, Delgado added.
