Despite the fact that there were a total of 13 people in the home at the time, 12-year-old Aleek Saint-Aime was the only one injured. 

The child's mother, Melissa Noel, told 10 News she believes the shooters may have intended to hit her 18-year-old nephew, who has spent time with a local gang in the past. 

Officials urge anyone with information regarding this crime to contact Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-226-8477. You may report anonymously and become eligible for the $1,000 reward.
