FLINT (WWJ/AP) – A 10-year-old mid-Michigan boy has died following a possible drive-by shooting on New Year’s Day.

Jacues Allen was inside his Flint home late Monday night when he was wounded by gunfire that came from outside, according to authorities. In critical condition, the child was rushed to a local hospital where police said he died on Wednesday.

Next-door neighbor Evelyn Cleaves told WJRT-TV that the gunfire was like a “boom, boom, boom, boom.”

State police have said it’s believed the shooting was a drive-by. No arrests have been made and no suspects have been named or described

As an investigation continues, it’s unclear who may have been the target, and a possible motive for the shooting is also unknown. George Cleaves said Jacues lived in the home with two other siblings and their grandmother.
