ORLANDO, Fla. – A boy may lose his eye after being struck by a stray bullet, and Orlando police are still searching for the gunman.

Victor Hernandez, 10, was struck by the stray bullet in his left eye after a fight broke out at around 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Pacifico Place Apartments on Shenandoah Way.

Police said Hernandez was looking out the window during the incident when he was hit. 

Three others were hit by bullets and went to the hospital, but one is not cooperating with police, according to the report. The two other victims reported a verbal fight before gunfire.

Police released pictures of vehicles they believe those involved may have left the scene in.
