Kansas City police are investigating a shooting that has left a 13-year old boy in serious but stable condition.

It happened shortly after 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday night.

Police were called to a home located on Wayne Avenue near East 56th Street. That neighborhood is just one block east of The Paseo.

Officers say the boy was shot at another location, but made it back to his home.

The boy was conscious when he was taken to the hospital.

No suspect information has been released.

A neighbor said she frequently hears gunshots, but not this close to home.

“It’s scary because we have kids, too but it doesn’t usually seem like it’s people that live in the neighborhood," said neighbor Mollee Flores.

A neighbor also said the boy's family had just moved into the neighborhood.
