Bay Area

A 10-year-old boy was among four people injured Wednesday night in a gang-related shooting in Santa Rosa. 

It happened at Jacobs Park around 8:30 p.m.

The park is located on West 9th Street near Abraham Lincoln Elementary School. 

Police said a man in an SUV stopped by the park and started shooting while several soccer games were going on.

At least 10 shots were fired. 

In addition to the 10-year-old boy, a 45-year-old soccer coach, a 20-year-old and 21-year-old man were also shot. 

Police believe the 21-year-old man was the intended target. He is in critical condition. 

The others are considered innocent bystanders.

Police believe a gang-related argument happened before the shots were fired. 

Police say the shooter drove away in a dark-colored SUV. He is described as a young Hispanic man. 

Authorities are offering a $2,500 reward for anyone with information leading to the arrest of the shooter.
