Teen shot in head while walking along DSM street
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Police are looking for the gunman who fired shots along a Des Moines street, striking a 17-year-old boy in the head.
KCCI-TV reports the victim was shot just after 4:30 p.m. Tuesday as he walked along the street with a group of friends.

He was taken to a Des Moines hospital where he was listed in critical condition.
Police say they don’t believe the shooting was random.
The investigation is continuing.
