Police are searching for the person who shot a 16-year-old at a Clarkston apartment complex on Christmas Eve.

Officers responded to a shooting call Friday around 3 p.m. at the Clarkston Station Apartments along Montreal Creek Circle, Clarkston police spokesman Sgt. Dustin Bulcher said. On scene, they found the boy suffering from a gunshot wound to the head, he added.

He was taken to the hospital and remained in critical condition as of Sunday afternoon, Bulcher said.

“We send our thoughts and prayers to the victim and his family during this holiday season,” he said.

Officers are still trying to piece the shooting together and do not know what led up to it. The identity of the suspect is unknown.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact Clarkston police Sgt. Trumble at 404-557-8956
