Police Investigate Shooting that Injures 12-year-old Boy

- July 21, 2014 - A 12-year-old boy is recovering today from a gun shot wound after he was fired at on East 25th street.

Erie police detectives are trying to piece together what happened.

They've recovered evidence and are trying to come up with a car description involved in the drive by shooting.

Police were called to Saint Vincent Hospital around 1:15am for a 12-year-old gunshot victim.

According to Erie Police Chief Randy Bowers, there was a group of kids ranging in ages from 12 to 17 near East 25th and Wallace Streets.

That's when police say a car drove by, firing a gun into the group around 11:30pm last night.

Chief Bowers says the kids weren't violating the curfew.

During the school year, anyone under 18 has to abide by the 10pm to 6am curfew, and midnight weekend curfew.

During the summer months, midnight is the curfew daily.

The 12-year-old was hit in the upper shoulder and arm when a vehicle drove through the intersection firing shots.

Chief Bowers says he was treated and released from the hospital.

Anyone with information that can help police with this case is asked to call 870-1120.
