FOLKS IN ONE NORTHSIDE NEIGHBORHOOD ARE SPEAKING OUT AFTER SIX-YEAR-OLD BOY WAS GRAZED BY A STRAY BULLET OVERNIGHT. MIA: THE BULLET WENT THROUGH ALL THROUGH AND WHILE IN THE CHILD’S HOME. THE BOYS EXPECTED TO BE OK. NEIGHBORS SAY THIS ISN’T THE FIRST TIME A HOME IN THE AREA HAS BEEN STRUCK BY A STRAY BULLET.

ANAYELIL: NEIGHBORS TELLS AT LEAST FIVE HOMES HERE HAVE — HERE HAVE BEEN HIT BY STRAY BULLETS. BEHIND HERE IS A FIELD WHERE PEOPLE WILL GO AND SHOOT THEIR GUNS IN THE AIR. [GUNFIRE] IT IS A SOUND THAT HAS BECOME TOO FAMILIAR FOR THESE RESIDENTS IN THE FAMILY AREA. RESIDENTS IN THE AREA. NOW THEY ARE SHOOTING IN THE DAYTIME.

ANAYELI: ACCORDING TO THE SHERIFF’S OFFICE, STRAY BULLET HIT A SIX-YEAR-OLD BOY MONDAY NIGHT WHILE HE WAS SITTING IN HIS LIVING ROOM. >> JUST HEARD A WHOLE BUNCH OF GUNSHOTS AND THEY CALLED, SCREAMING AND CRYING, SAYING SOMEBODY WAS SHOOTING.

THEIR INVESTIGATION IS ONGOING, BUT THEY TELL US IT IS ILLEGAL FOR YOU TO DISCHARGE YOUR FIREARM WITHIN CITY LIMITS, AND ALSO, SO CLOSE TO A NEIGHBORHOOD.

IF YOU ARE FOUND, YOU COULD BE CHARGED WITH RECKLESS DISCHARGING OF A FIREARM. ANAYELI RUIZ, KHOU 11 NEWS. MIA:.
