DETROIT – A 3-year-old boy was shot in the foot early Sunday morning, according to police.
It happened before 4 a.m. in the 3000 block of South Annabelle Street. Police said it was a drive-by shooting. The child was asleep in his bed when the shooting happened.
The boy was taken to a hospital, where he is listed in stable condition. He is expected to make a full recovery.
At first, Marcia Barnett though someone was knocking on the window before she heard her son crying.
"I picked him up and I realized he was bleeding," Barnett said. "I look in the mirror and I was like, 'Oh my God, he's been shot.'"
Esteban Ramirez had been shot in the foot, the innocent victim of a drive-by shooting. The bullets narrowly missed a 5-year-old boy sleeping next to him.
Barnett said her son was calm while paramedics wrapped up his foot, but he will likely miss the first week of preschool.
