Police: Boy, 7, struck by possible stray bullet
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Authorities say a 7-year-old boy was struck by what is believed to be a stray bullet as he walked to a store with his family in St. Louis.
St. Louis police Capt. Renee Kriesmann said that the boy was hit in the right cheek Tuesday morning as he walked with a group of adults and other children just east of Fairground Park. The boy, who has not been identified, was transported to a hospital by family members.
Kriesmann said that the boy may have been caught in the crossfire of gunshots.
