2008_08_kelly.jpgPolice have questioned a man suspected of shooting a 9-year-old boy on Monday night. Gunfire erupted between two men outside a Crown Heights housing project (the Daily News suggests it was a "drug turf war"), and Shamhawan Kelly was hit by a bullet which entered his temple and exited his forehead. Fights and shootings are "not unfamiliar" to the project's residents--the NY Times reports "longtime residents... taught their children to hit the ground when a shot was heard"--but one resident wept yesterday, "This [shooting] was the worst." The NYPD hopes the $12,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction will encourage witnesses to step forward. The boy's family remains hopeful, as he seems to be improving.
