DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Police say a 10-year-old boy was shot in the head and his sister grazed by a bullet in a parked car near a Dayton intersection.

Dayton police say 10-year-old Quayshon Hill and 7-year-old Tayjanae Hill of West Carrollton were shot Thursday night while in the car with their 2-year-old sister and mother Schaunte Hill.

A spokeswoman at Children’s Medical Center of Dayton said the boy remained in critical condition today.

Police say at least a dozen shots were fired from an alley and many struck the car.

Biehl said it was not clear if anyone in the car was intentionally targeted.
