Teen Injured In Shooting

A 16-year-old boy is in critical condition after being shot in the head on Tuesday (24OCT06). The police were called to a street in San Pablo, California after gunshots were heard. They found the victim on the sidewalk of a liquor store with a head injury. According to police, the victim was with a friend when he went to the front of the store, where a dispute involving the victim arose moments later. Detective Sgt. Jim Creekmore said, "It appears that the (victim) had fired several rounds." Evidence of a shooting was found at the scene. It is not clear yet to investigators if the victim's injury, which resulted in him being sent to a trauma center, was caused by a bullet. Officers have not yet found the other party or a firearm.
