PASADENA, California. On November 21, Pasadena police examined surveillance footage of an area where a 13-year-old boy was shot by a stray bullet while playing video games in his bedroom.
According to commander Mark Goodman of the Pasadena Police Department, the shooting occurred at 6:12 pm Saturday in the 900th block of North Raymond Avenue, near Mountain Street, when a stray bullet hit a window.
According to Goodman, the arriving police gave the boy artificial respiration, and paramedics took him to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
According to him, the target of the shooting is unknown, but, apparently, it is not a boy. The investigators had no suspicious information, but they asked the public for information.
“If you know anything about this tragic incident or have seen anything, please contact the Pasadena Police Department,” Goodman said, according to ABC7. “We will keep your information anonymous. We want to find the people responsible for this tragic incident and bring them to justice. “
Several shots were fired, but the police did not know whether the shooter was firing from a car or walking.
“We’re looking at every available video that we have,” Pasadena Police Chief John Perez said Sunday morning at City Hall’s press conference.
“We need to look at a lot, because these are watches and clocks. … We do not just look at the time when it happened. We go from before and after, and we pull so much from so many places that it takes a long time. And so we still need to go back today, knock on doors and try to find more. “
Anyone with information about the shots was urged to call Pasadena Police at 626-744-4241 or provide information anonymously by contacting Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477) or http://lacrimestoppers.org. People can also give advice using their smartphone by downloading the P3 Tips mobile app.
