A 12-year-old boy was shot in the leg on Sunday night inside an East Harlem bodega, according to an NYPD spokesperson.
Police say the shooting occurred around 8:45 p.m. inside 1858 Lexington Avenue, at the El Barrio Superette at East 115th Street.
However, other outlets have reported that the boy was shot actually two blocks away, at East 113th Street and Lexington Avenue.

The Post reports that the boy ran to the deli after being shot and people there called for help; a witness said, "When he walked into the store, he just fell down. He was like bleeding and whatever and they took him to the ambulance."
The boy, who underwent surgery, was released from the hospital. No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.
