The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says a 3-year-old boy was shot Wednesday night in Mangonia Park.

The shooting occurred around 9:30 p.m. in the 800 block of Tiffany Drive West.

Just before midnight, a WPTV crew at the scene spotted bullet holes in the back of a car and investigators at the residence.

 

PBSO said a family member quickly drove the child, who was shot in the leg, to a local hospital where he is expected to survive. 

Witnesses told investigators they could not provide any information on the shooter.  The motive for the shooting is unclear.
