A 7-year-old boy was listed in critical condition Sunday after being shot in the head while attending a Christmas gathering in Gary, Ind.

Leonard Cobb was reportedly playing a game in the living room during a family celebration when shots were fired into the home from outside, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. A 36-year-old man was also wounded in the incident.

The incident happened just after midnight at a small house in the 1000 block of Durbin Street, according to the Chicago Tribune.

"It's very tragic. Especially because Christmas is a time for giving, sharing, families getting together, and families who may have not seen each other since last Christmas," Gary police spokeswoman Gabrielle King told NBC Chicago.

NBC also reports that the shots were fired from across the street, making it unclear whether the home was the shooter's target.

Leonard was in critical condition at University of Chicago Comer Children’s Hospital Sunday afternoon, the Sun-Times reports.

“He was totally innocent,’’ King told the Tribune. “He was just trying to have some fun.’’

No arrests have been made, and police are asking anyone with information to contact Detective Alex Jones at (219) 881-7477.
