Brian Fernandez, 6-Year-Old Chicago Boy, Shot 3 Times In Overnight Violence
In what's tragically become a now-familiar report,
another young child
has been critically injured in Chicago gun violence.
The latest victim is 6-year-old Brian Fernandez, who was shot three times while sitting in a car with his 7-year-old brother, Roger, Wednesday evening in Gage Park.
The Tribune reports
the Brian was shot while sitting in the backseat of the car driven by his 19-year-old brother shortly after the two small boys got out of their tutoring class
at a family friend's house in the 5600 block of South Mozart Street.
Brian was shot in the shoulder and chest and taken to the hospital in critical condition. Wednesday night, the boy's mother said through an interpreter her son was stable.
"But the bullet did go through," the mother told the Tribune. "It went into the chest and went out the back. They gave him morphine to try to control him."
