A 7-year-old Philadelphia boy who was shot in the head while playing on his front porch on Saturday has died from his wounds, according to a report.
Zamar Jones, who was caught in the crossfire when shots erupted outside his West Philadelphia home was pronounced dead at 1 p.m. Monday, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.
The youngster had been fighting for his life at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia since the 7:40 p.m. shooting Saturday when more than a dozen shots rang out in an exchange of gunfire between three men, according to authorities.
The boy was sitting next to his toy race car and a scooter when he was struck by gunfire.
A nurse who lives in the neighborhood performed CPR on the boy until police arrived and he was rushed to the hospital.
One of the suspects, Christopher Linder, 27, was arrested and arraigned Monday on attempted murder and aggravated assault charges — but is expected to be charged with murder, prosecutors told the Inquirer.
Philadelphia police have not determined a motive for the shooting and are still looking for the two other suspects, the outlet said.
