An 8-year-old boy is dead of a gunshot wound, and detectives are questioning other kids who were with him in a north Dallas apartment to determine how he was shot.

The incident happened Thursday afternoon in a second-floor flat at the Spanish Point Apartments. However, reports on what happened are sketchy and conflicting.

Police say several children who witnessed the shooting initially told officers that a masked man entered the apartment and shot the child.

However, no other children were injured. Dallas police Lt. David Pughes said there was no active manhunt and that investigators continued to question witnesses.
