Detroit police are investigating after a 13-year-old boy was shot inside his home overnight.

According to police, it happened at a home in the 8400 block of Plainview, near Evergreen and Joy Rd. on the city's west side.

Police say the teen was sitting on a couch in the living room when someone shot through the front window, hitting him in the foot. 

The teen was taken to the hospital and is in stable condition. No suspects are in custody and there isn't a suspect description.

This is another one of several shootings involving children in Detroit in the last month.

On April 7, a 3-year-old girl was shot on Detroit's west side. Two days before, on April 5, a 7-year-old was shot on the city's east side. An 8-year-old girl was shot at a gas station on March 23.
