Police in the northern US state of Wisconsin said Tuesday they are looking for a man who shot two children who threw snowballs at his car over the weekend.
The children — a 12-year-old girl and a 13-year old boy — suffered non-life threatening gunshot wounds, the Milwaukee Police said in a statement.
They were part of a group of kids throwing snowballs at passing cars Saturday evening in Milwaukee, a city of about half a million people 90 miles (145 kilometers) north of Chicago.
“One of the snowballs struck a white Toyota, no further description, and the driver of the auto fired shots into the group of kids striking the two victims,” the statement said.
The department asked for help identifying the shooter.
Political opponents have tagged United States (US) Republican, Donald Trump’s plan to deport 11 million undocumented immigrants from the US as impractical and divisive.
In a live television debate, two of his Republican rivals, who are also fighting for presidential nomination, John Kasich and Jeb Bush, were very critical of Mr Trump’s immigration plans.
Mr Trump, a billionaire New Yorker who has been leading in the polls, was booed as he tried to counter-attack.
Another source of friction at the debate in Milwaukee was foreign policy.
The eight candidates were divided on whether the US should do more to intervene in the Middle East, especially in the fight against Islamic State (IS) militants.
But immigration sparked the biggest confrontation when Mr Trump said that a wall should be built at the US-Mexico border, and all migrants living illegally in the US must be deported.
