The search is on for the gunman who Los Angeles police say shot a teenage boy twice in the face outside a restaurant over the weekend.The shooting happened at Meridian and Figueroa streets in the Highland Park neighborhood on Saturday night.

The 13-year-old victim was standing outside Italiano's Pizza Parlor when someone drove by and opened fire.

Police say most of the people who were at the scene fled after the shots were fired, so there are few details from witnesses so far.

A red vehicle was seen leaving the area.

The boy is in critical condition at County-USC Medical Center.

There is no word on a motive.
