Two kids shot in Selma. It might be a case of mistaken identity, police say


SELMA, California (KSEE/KGPE) – Two kids were shot in Selma Sunday night, but are expected to be OK, according to police.

Several 911 calls came in to the Selma Police Department around 8 p.m. for reports of a shooting in the area of Gaynor and Valley View streets.

The kids, under the ages of 10 years old, were found at Gaynor and Yerba streets and taken to Community Regional Medical Center.

They are going to be OK.

One child had injuries to his legs and the other to an arm. They are both listed in stable condition.

Police say they were likely in the wrong place at the wrong time, leading them to believe it was a case of mistaken identity or they caught in the crossfire.

A White vehicle was seen driving through the area and is believed to be involved in the incident, police said. The vehicle was possibly involved in a different incident earlier in the evening in Selma.

The Police Department is asking anyone with information to contact Detective Richard Figueroa (559) 896-2525.
