A 13-year-old boy was struck in the knee by a bullet yesterday as he walked up the steps to a grocery store in Southwest Baltimore, city police said.
Southwest District police said the boy was climbing the steps to Jimmy's Food Mart in the 2100 block of Hollins Street about 12:40 p.m. when he heard several shots and felt pain in his right knee.
The boy, whose name was not released because of his age, was hit once in the knee and taken to University Hospital, where he was in good condition last night, police said. The boy didn't see where the shots were coming from, but police said they found six 9mm casings in the 2100 block of nearby Boyd Street. They had no suspects or motive yesterday for the shooting.
