HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say a 10-year-old boy was shot in the face after seven shots were fired at his house while he was sitting on the couch watching TV.

Harrisburg police Chief Thomas Carter tells the Patriot-News of Harrisburg that the boy was rushed to the Hershey Medical Center Monday night to be treated and that his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

Carter says he believes the house was targeted and the shooting wasn't random.

Police say five shots hit the house and that four other children were inside.
