Bronx Girl, 10, Grazed By Bullet Walking Home From School

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A 10-year-old girl was grazed by a bullet Wednesday afternoon while walking home from school in the Bronx.

The young girl, who was walking with her mother at the time of the shooting, was treated in an ambulance at the scene and was taken to Bronx Lebanon Hospital.  She is expected to be fine, CBS 2’s Hazel Sanchez reported.

The incident happened in the Fairmont-Claremont Village section of the borough at the intersection of Fox Street and Home Street.

“I hear about 4 or 5 gunshot on the corner of Fox…I don’t know what happened,” said witness Jesus Basutz.

Police are still looking for a man in his 2’s who they said fired at least 8 bullets, one of which struck the girl as she left P.S. 150 and walked home.  Several other bullets were lodged in a nearby home.

Authorities said it is unclear why the gunman opened fire, but that the child and her mother were not the intended targets.

    enough is too much. the street is not safe for a 10 yr old to walk home from school without some miserable excuse for oxygen consumption on the planet having a gun and shooting her. time for the legislature to be about the people’s business and put some piranha teeth in gun control legislation. perps like this need to go away for 10 years first offense. there is no 2nd chance. and 2nd offense (if there is one) is life behind bars. time for more prisons. 4 ft diameter cells, no windows, no free education, no tv, no computer, no free education, 2 meals a day, very limited electricity, 2 meals a day. time for neighborhood watch to be resurrected, and public defender whiners to take a back seat and shut up. those who supply illegal guns get the life sentence. ah for the days of the spanish inquisition. get better soon young lady.
