A 13-year-old victim is in critical condition, and a 13-year-old suspect remains on the loose after the Sunday night shooting.

It happened in the parking lot of Inwood Village apartments on TC Jester near Little York. Police say three teens went to the apartment complex looking for a fight. When a 13-year-old started to find himself on the losing end of the altercation, someone gave him a handgun and he fired into the crowd.

Another 13-year-old boy was struck in the head. He was taken to Texas Children's Hospital, where he is listed in critical condition.

The suspect got away. A police investigation is underway, and no suspects are in custody.
