According to police, an 18-year-old male suspect was firing at individuals parked in a car outside the teen's home when a stray bullet entered the house, striking the teen in the ankle.

No one else was injured in the incident that occurred around 11:55 p.m. Sunday and left several parked vehicles riddled with bullet holes. Police said yesterday that they've identified the suspect and were attempting to locate him.
