A 10-year-old child is recovering in the hospital with potentially life-threatening injuries after being shot several times while in the 300 block of Parke Street at 3 p.m. Feb. 14, according to Pasadena police.

Preliminary investigations show the suspects exited a late model, light-colored four-door sedan and fired multiple shots, striking the victim. The suspect then re-entered their vehicle and fled.

The motive is unknown, but police said it appears the 10-year-old was not the intended victim. No additional details were available.
