Boy shot in foot while going to grocery

From the Daily News by Tanyanika Samuels and John Lauinger:

A 10-year-old boy sent by his father to pick up Chinese food was shot in the foot when he got caught in a drive-by in the Bronx Saturday, police said.

The boy, who was not identified, was approaching the Hop Wong Restaurant on Monroe Ave. and W. 175th St. in Mount Hope about 12:30 a.m. when a gunman in a passing car opened fire on an unrelated group hanging outside.

"My son would have to be in the house before the sun goes down," said Vanessa Tucker, 23, who heard the gunfire.

A group of people comforted the boy until an ambulance arrived. He was in stable condition at St. Barnabas Hospital. Police haven't made an arrest.
