11-year-old boy grazed by pellet while riding bike in alley

MILWAUKEE -- An 11-year-old boy was grazed by a pellet while riding his bike through an alley on Milwaukee's north side on Sunday, September 16th.

The shooting happened just before 4:30 p.m. near 37th and Center in Milwaukee. Police say the boy was not the intended victim.

The pellet grazed the boy's chest.

The investigation shows there was evidence of gambling a block away from where the boy was struck -- and that's what prompted the exchange of gunfire.

Kevin Jordan is the boy's father, and he spoke with FOX6 News Monday.

"(The suspects) should realize hey, this could've been their brother, their kid, so I hope they have some kind of sympathy for what they've done, or some kind of remorse," Jordan said.

The boy is listed in stable condition.

Police were able to take four men into custody later Sunday evening. The men showed up at the hospital -- one with a leg wound.

Police have not officially given a motive for the shooting.
