Philadelphia news, Pennsylvania news.

A 10-year-old boy is in critical but stable condition after being shot in the head after a shootout in Pennsylvania on Wednesday, police said.

The shots were fired from a car just after 3:30 pm Wednesday, about two blocks from a college in the Frankford district in northeast Philadelphia, police said.

The child was hit in the back of his head as he walked, investigators said. He was taken to the hospital of a local child in critical condition, they added.

Sullivan called the shooting "unacceptable" and said he hoped the community would provide information to help resolve the case.

Shots took place at the back of a red or brown Pontiac G6, according to Sullivan.

The 10-year-old boy was identified as Semaj O'Branty by a family member.

No arrests were made.
