By Bowen Xiao

A 10-year-old boy who was shot in a drive-by shooting on New Year’s day has died, police said.

Jacques Ja’mon Allen was inside his home located at 5501 Granville Ave. when a barrage of gunshots rang out after 10 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 1, ABC12 reported.

According to ABC12, Allen got shot and was rushed to the Hurley Medical Center in critical condition.

He later died from his injuries on Tuesday, Jan. 2. at the hospital.

The Flint Police Department is seeking answers to the shooting and if it’s somehow connected to another incident. In that case, police said a teenager was critically injured.

Neighbors of the boy also told ABC12 that the two shootings took place within weeks of each other and in the same area.

Further details have not been released as of writing on Wednesday afternoon.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-422-JAIL.

In another, separate drive-by shooting previously reported by NTD, a young boy was killed on Saturday night, Nov. 4, after being hit by gunfire in San Antonio, Texas.

San Antonio police said the family was driving down New Laredo Highway near Briggs Avenue on the South West Side when another car pulled up beside them and fired one single shot, ABC affiliate KSAT reported.

Renee Blancs, a 3-year-old boy, was shot in the head according to police. The family drove to the nearest hospital, Southwest General Hospital, where the baby was later air-lifted to University hospital. It was there where he was pronounced dead.

Max Massey, a reporter for KSAT first broke the news in a tweet.

In an update, San Antonio detectives said they are now searching for a gold or beige 4-door 2000 model Honda Civic, in connection to the murder, KSAT reported.

As of writing, police are still investigating the incident to find out who fired the shots, and what their motive was.

Renee was only three days away from celebrating his fourth birthday this coming Wednesday on Nov. 8, KSAT reported.

According to San Antonio Express-News, Renee was riding in the back seat of his families vehicle when he was shot around 11:30 p.m, on Saturday.

The single round fired from the suspect traveled through the trunk, before striking the child in the head.
