FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- For the second time in two days a child was shot inside a Fort Wayne home.
Police responded to a shooting call at the 3800 block of Euclid Avenue at 10:43 p.m.
Officers found a 13-year-old boy with gunshot wounds not believed to be life-threatening.
Investigators say someone knocked on the door of the home. When the teen answered multiple shots were fired.
Neighbors who spoke with FOX 55 say they confused the gunfire for fireworks.
Robin Barkdull has lived in the area for 6 years. He says this usually doesn't happen so close to where he lives.
Barkdull said "I’ve never really had a problem since I’ve been here. I mean, that got shot up last night and I guess when the fellas just moved in a couple of years ago, I guess they got shot at, but I’ve never had any problems."
Police say they have no suspects at this time.
They're asking for help solving both this shooting and a shooting early Sunday morning that left an 8-year-old boy wounded.
"We need to continue to work together to put an end to this" Sgt. Sofia Rosales-Scatena said in a statement. "Please come forward with any information you may have about these or any other shootings."
However, Barkdull believes this sort of thing may be hard to stop.
"I don’t want it to be the norm, but I believe it’s going to happen for a while until they can calm down... some of these gang guys around here," Barkdull said.
