A 10-year-old boy was going home from school in Philadelphia was seriously injured Wednesday when he was shot in the back of the head by a stray bullet, police says.

Philadelphia police told a man concerned in the shooting had been detained, but the gunman remains on the loose, according to the source.

Authorities told Semaj O’Branty was not the expected target. He was going home from school in Frankford about 3:30 p.m. when police say to a man driving a red Pontiac G6 fired at the man in custody, who attempted to shield the boy and fired back, the station reported.

“He attempts to cover the kid and defend the kid, but the kid takes a shot,” Philadelphia Police Capt. John Walker told, according to the station.
