Levon Gilliam Jr. was getting off a school bus when he was apparently caught in the crossfire and shot in the left leg.
A young boy was shot in the leg Monday afternoon in Brownsville, Brooklyn.
Jersey City Medical Center spokesman Mark Rabson said that the boy, identified as Jaden Thaxton, is moving and talkative. He will remain in the hospital overnight.
Police are searching for a suspect who opened fire on a Plainfield street on Thursday afternoon.
The boy managed to find uniformed police officers just a block away who were able to get him to King County Hospital.
