MIAMI (AP) - Police say a 10-year-old boy is recovering after being shot by gunmen who fired into a crowded basketball court outside an apartment complex in Miami.

The shooting happened Wednesday night.

According to police, the three gunmen walked up to the court where children and teens were gathered and began firing. The boy was riding a bicycle nearby when he was shot in the leg. No one else was injured.

Authorities say they don’t know the motive for the shooting. An investigation continues.

In March, a 10-year-old boy and a 16-year-old boy were killed in separate shootings a few hours apart. Those shooting are still under investigation.
