17-year old Rhode Island boy shot and killed from outside his home

A 17-year old boy was in his home in Providence, Rhode Island, when a bullet entered his home from outside, killing him.  Police don't think it was a stray bullet.

From an article:
Providence police say they're looking for suspects in the killing of a 17-year-old boy who was shot inside a home when gunfire apparently came through a window. 
Authorities say the teen was shot at about 9 p.m. Tuesday in a home on Colfax Street. Police say he was in the kitchen when someone opened fire outside. 
Major David Lapatin says investigators do not believe this was a case of stray bullets. They believe the home was targeted. 
The victim's name hasn't been released. He was taken to Rhode Island Hospital, where police say he was pronounced dead at about 2:30 a.m. Wednesday. 
Two men reportedly were seen running from the scene.
