FORT WORTH -- Police are investigating two reports of people being shot through the windows of moving vehicles on Sunday.

One of the shootings was in north Fort Worth, the other was in the southeastern part of the city. Sgt. Pedro Criado, a police spokesman, said the two shootings were "not related."

A 57-year-old man told police he was westbound on Northeast Loop 820 "when he heard a loud noise and his passenger side window shattered," said Officer Kellie A. Whitehead, police spokeswoman, in a news release. The location appeared to be just east of the intersection with Interstate 35W.

He stopped at a nearby Denny's restaurant where he called police at 2:48 a.m., Whitehead said. He was taken to a hospital. His condition could not be learned on Monday.

As reported earlier, a 4-year-old boy was wounded about 12:45 a.m. Sunday as he traveled with his family near U.S. 287 and Miller Avenue. According to broadcast news reports, someone fired into the vehicle, and a shot entered the child's shoulder and went out through his neck.

On Sunday, the child was in stable condition at Cook Children's Medical Center. No updated information was available Monday.
