A five-year-old is the victim of what appears to be a fatal drive-by shooting in Modesto Saturday night, according to Modesto police.
The shooting was reported off of Lake Park Court just before 10:00 p.m. Saturday.
Modesto police later tweeted just after 12:30 a.m., reporting the five-year-old had succumbed to his injuries.
Witnesses in the area said another child was shot and taken to a local hospital by family, police said. Officers contacted the family and determined the six-year-old's injuries to be non-life threatening.
Lisa Reyes lives next door to the home where shots were fired at. She says she was home and heard several shots then ran outside.
The five-year-old boy was a classmate of her granddaughter and family friend, Reyes said.
“He loved football," Reyes said.
Early information suggests the victims were among a couple of groups of people gathered in front of a home when they were shot, police said.
Suspects have not been identified, nor has a motive, according to police.
