January 14th, 2010 by

ORLANDO, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) – Police are looking for an 11-year-old boy and his father following a shooting which sent another boy to the hospital. The father, 26-year-old Robert Lee Hart, is a convicted felon. He took his son and the gun he used and left the scene.

There are still many unanswered questions about what happened. Deputies say the 11-year old was inside a home on 13th Street in Orlando when he shot his cousin.

They do believe it was an accident, but now the focus is on finding the shooter and his father.

“He need to turn himself in,” said Hart’s cousin James Turner. “Talk to the police…straight up.”

Relatives of the father say he’s violating his probation by having the gun in the house, and that may be the reason he ran. Meanwhile, the victim is going to be okay. He is in stable condition at Arnold Palmer Hospital.
