BRAWLEY — Police here said today they have received a number of leads regarding Sunday's gang-style shooting in which a 16-year-old boy was shot once in the head.
Meanwhile, the youth, whose identity was unavailable, was in critical condition on life support this morning at an undisclosed San Diego hospital.
Brawley police Lt. John Myers said police were contacted by hospital officials who said the teen is expected to survive.
The shooting occurred about midnight Sunday as the boy was at a party with as many as 30 people at a house in the 1000 block of B Street.
While there were members of a Brawley gang at the party before the shooting, the teen shot is not thought to be a gang member. Police said the boy had been invited to the party by a relative.
