TULSA, Okla. – An Oklahoma child is recovering after being shot in the back while inside his own home.

On Thursday night, authorities say the 5-year-old boy was inside one of the rooms of his home when a gunman opened fire through one of the windows.

Officials say the blinds were drawn, so no one could see who was inside the home. Police don’t believe the child was the intended target, but he was the only one injured by the gunfire.

One of the bullets hit the boy in the back, but he is expected to be okay.

Police told Fox 23 that the suspected shooter is still on the run.

Neighbors say they saw a suspicious vehicle parked nearby, but officers believe the gunman was on foot since the window faces another home.
