A 17-year-old boy was shot six times in Norwalk in what officials believe was a gang-related attack.

City News Service reports that the boy, whose name hasn't been released, was hit with six bullets in the abdomen at about 8:45 p.m. yesterday. The attack occurred near Mapledale Street and Gard Avenue.

The boy was taken to the hospital, but authorities say that they don't have any more information about the motive for the assault, nor do they have any suspects.
