BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) - Manatee County sheriff's deputies are still investigating a weekend drive-by shooting that injured a 4-year-old boy.
The Bradenton Herald (http://bit.ly/16uz4tA) reports the boy was struck in the head shortly before noon Saturday. He remains hospitalized in St. Petersburg.
Deputies say someone in a vehicle fired several shots at the home where the boy lives with his mother.
Investigators say they believe the home was specifically targeted, and it's possible the shooting was related to gang activity.
One of the bullets entered into the bedroom window, striking the boy. No one else was injured.
There were two adults in the home at the time.
