Nine-year-old shot while playing with friends in Rowland Heights

If this doesn’t make you sick, it should.

A nine-year-old boy, playing with his friends, was shot in the legs Wednesday night by some cowards prowling an alleyway in Rowland Heights. Here’s Brian Day’s story from overnight:

 

ROWLAND HEIGHTS – A 9-year-old boy was shot and wounded in both legs as he played in a yard Wednesday night, authorities said.

The shooting was reported at 8:22 p.m. in an alley just west of the 2000 block of Sierra Leone Avenue.

The boy was expected to survive his injuries, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Mike Browne said.

A group of children were playing in a yard in the alley when two men opened fire with a shotgun or rifle, sheriff’s Sgt. Mario Estrada said.

Browne said the shooting appeared to be “unprovoked.”

The shooters were described as two Latino men between 16 and 18 years old with shaved heads, they were wearing white T-shirts and black pants, Browne said.

  1. Worst thing is shooters are kicking back laughing, hitting the pipe with a 40ouncer at Granma’s house while getting another Tat.
    Bet no one saw nuttin’.

  2. I DON’T AGREE WITH THE WORDS MR. JIMENEZ USED , BUT I ALSO FEEL THE POLICE SHOULD INVESTIGATE MORE BEFORE PUTTING OUT THERE THAT THE SUSPECTS WERE HISPANIC . IN REALITY AS A RESIDENT OF ROWLAND HEIEGTS OF OVER 30 YRS. AND COUNTING , THIS HAS BEEN THE WORST JOB I’VE SEEN OFFICERS PERFORM . I STRONGLY HOPE THAT THEY DO CLEAN UP OUR AREA FOR THE SAFETY OF EVERY-ONE RESIDING HERE , BUT PRAYING THEY CATCH THE RIGHT SUSPECTS .
