HOUSTON, Texas (KPRC) - A 10-year-odl boy is recovering after bullets flew through his apartment wall, hitting him as he slept.
Police in Houston, Texas said 10-year-old Andrei Azate was sleeping on the living room floor of his family's apartment at the Sunset Crossing Apartments in Alief, when gun shots rang out just after midnight Tuesday.
"The sound -- pop, pop, pop, pop. It was short but loud and I said that's not firecrackers," said neighbor Gwen Gonzalez.
The boy was transported to the hospital in stable condition. He has since returned home to recover.
The intended target, police say, was not the little boy, but someone living in a nearby apartment.
Investigators say the shooter walked up to the area and fired more than four shots.
