CHICAGO (CBS) — A 4-year-old boy was shot Wednesday night in a drive-by shooting in Gary, Indiana, according to the Gary Police Department.
The boy was grazed in the arm, stomach and back as he sat in a car with his mother and mother’s boyfriend at the corner of 24th Avenue and Buchanan Street around 5 p.m., police said.
The boy’s mother and her boyfriend ducked in the car, and the child was in the back seat in a child restraint when he was grazed.

Twenty-one shell casings were found on the ground at the scene.
