OAKLAND — An 11-year-old boy is recovering from a bullet wound he received while he was sleeping when someone shot into his family's Oakland apartment.

Oakland television station KTVU reports (http://bit.ly/12OYDJn ) that a bullet grazed the boy, who was one of seven people inside the apartment when the shots were fired before dawn on Sunday. The injury was not life-threatening.

None of the other occupants were hurt.

Oakland Police Lt. Brandon Wehrly says officers are looking for two suspects, but don't yet know if they fired from a car or while standing outside the dwelling.

Wehrly says investigators aren't sure why the apartment was targeted.
