11-Year-Old Boy Shot After Man Allegedly Fights Fireworks with Hand Gun
|They're annoying, yes, but let's not shoot kids.|
The kids were riding bikes and lighting fireworks around 9:45 p.m. in the 4200 block of McRee Avenue, when the man, who has not been identified, confronted them. (Perhaps he was helpfully reminding them that fireworks are illegal in the city.) Angry words were exchanged, which resulted in the man drawing his gun and opening fire. On a group of kids.
An 11-year-old boy was shot in the leg, but his injuries are not considered serious. He is refusing to cooperate with the police, however. The shooter is in custody
