BULLETS rain flying in neighborhood as if it was a warzone – Boy, 6, shot and fighting for life

51

It was a bad evening in Kansas City street on Wednesday when young kids playing were forced to scatter with bullets running from here and there.

What Happened?

Children were tossing a basketball and shouting gleefully on a block near Central High School around 7 p.m. Wednesday.

But their shouts turned into screams of terror as a barrage of gunfire rang out.

Parents were seen reaching for their children as they scattered, and a little girl was seen hoisting a toddler in her arms before running inside her house.

Boy in a Critical Condition

Now, a six-year-old boy is left fighting for his life in a Kansas City hospital – he was knocked off his bike by a stray bullet and was rushed to a nearby hospital by an ambulance in critical condition.

Police officers were reported to be in the area when gunshots sounded. When they arrived on the scene, the six-year-old was lying on the sidewalk.

The little boy is the third child shot in eight days in the area. An 11-year-old and five-year-old both died in separate shootings earlier this month.

Kourtney Freeman was sitting inside her home near East 33rd Street and Flora Avenue when bullets flew on April 10.

She was unconscious when she was carried to the front lawn, trailing blood, and ultimately succumbed to her injuries.

Kourtney

Kourtney, a fifth-year student at the Ewing Marion Kauffman School, died one month shy of her 12th birthday.

The spate of gun violence has since left locals frustrated.

A neighbor said: ‘It’s horrible. When I just found out he was 6 years old and all those people that was outside – left a little kid outside, that’s bad.’
