On Thursday, deputies said they responded to the shooting scene at about 7:40 p.m. in the 12200 block of Tidwell, where they found the boy on the ground.
Gonzalez said multiple rounds of shots were fired. Deputies said a man in a white T-shirt was seen running from the scene toward Tidwell, but they were unsure if he was connected to the shooting.
"Everyone (is) focused on weather right now. Someone to be out here shooting multiple shots at an apartment complex, very dangerous," authorities said.
Investigators were called to the scene to attempt at locating any cameras with surveillance footage.
