King City teen shot in hand by unknown assailant

KING CITY, Calif. - A 15 year-old boy was shot in the hand Sunday evening as he walked into a trailer park at 935 Broadway Street in King City.

King City police say the boy and a friend were walking home from a shopping mall around 6:30 p.m. when someone fired shots at them from the entrance to the trailer park. The boy was hit in the hand as he dove for cover.

After the shooter left, the boys continued home and the victim was taken to the hospital by family members.

Police don't have a suspect description, but a witness reported seeing a newer model, dark colored sedan leaving the area.

King City police hope anyone with information about the shooting will contact them at (831) 386-5980 or the WeTip line at 1-800-78-CRIME.
