Police say the 14-year old victim and a friend were walking across the parking lot when someone got out of a brown Dodge Dakota Pick-up truck and shot the 14-year old in the torso.  The suspect then got back into the vehicle and left the scene.    

The victim was taken to the intensive care unit at Sunnyside Community Hospital and is currently in serious condition.

Police say more evidence was found at the scene, but this is all the information they're giving us right now.
