Dallas police confirm a 7-year-old boy was shot during a possible drive-by shooting.

It happened Saturday around 7:52 p.m. at a home in the 10300 block of Chelmsford Drive.

The child was struck in the leg and transported to Children's Medical Center Dallas. A police spokesperson said the injuries are not life threatening.

The suspect vehicle is a white SUV, possible a Tahoe, but investigators were still working to confirm that information. There was no information available about the suspect or suspects.

A man who said he is the boy's uncle, but who would not give his name, said whoever was responsible shot up the car.

Police say it's not clear if there were words exchanged prior to the shooting or if gunfire was exchanged involving more than one person.

The boy's uncle says he didn't even cry after the shooting. He says the gunman had to see have seen the children as one of them was still getting in the car.

Police have not identified a motive, but the uncle indicated the family might have known who was responsible. The home in question did appear to have security cameras on it.
