Police say a 12-year-old boy fatally shot in an attack on juveniles near a Cleveland liquor store had stepped outside of the store with his father after the shooting started and was struck by a stray bullet.

Authorities haven't identified the boy or his father, who owned the store. Police say five teen boys between the ages of 14 and 16 were wounded in the shooting around 7:30 p.m. Friday, including a 16-year-old hospitalized with a gunshot wound to the head.

Cleveland shooting

A Cleveland police spokeswoman says the teens were standing outside the liquor store when a group of three to four males opened fire. Police Chief Calvin Williams says it's believed the shooters also are juveniles.

Williams has sent his condolences to the family of the dead child, who hasn't been publicly identified.

"We don't know what exactly spurred this or what happened, but definitely our hearts go out to the families of the victims here," Williams said.

Officials are seeking the public's help in identifying and arresting the shooting suspects.​
