Bullets pierced through a house killing a 14-year-old boy and wounding another boy near Lockport Monday night.

The shooting happened in the 400 block of Fairmont Ave. in the unincorporated Will County around 8:15 p.m. Monday, said Will County Sheriff's office spokesman Ken Kaupas.

The gunfire hit the boys standing in a bedroom in the front of the house, the Chicago Tribune reports.

The 14-year-old's mother was in another part of the home at the time of the shooting, said authorities.

Both victims were transported to Silver Cross Hospital in Joliet.

Police are looking for the gunman and investigating the motive.
