A 12-year-old boy was seriously injured in a shooting Sunday at the Blue Valley Court Townhouses. Fox 4 reported that the boy's 18-year-old brother was also shot.
The brothers were reportedly sitting on a porch near 20th and Wheeling when three men walked up and opened fire just before 3 p.m. The preteen was shot in the neck while his brother was grazed by a bullet. The brothers are reportedly expected to be all right, with the young boy in stable condition now.
Police told Fox 4 that the gunmen were apparently targeting the home where the two brothers were shot. Neighbors reported hearing up to five gunshots. As always, if you can help police, call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.
