Detectives were searching for whoever fired several shots, grazing the boy's torso, in the area of Keen Street and Rosa Parks Boulevard around 10:15 p.m., Police Director Jerry Speziale said Thursday morning.

He was taken to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center, where the director said he was listed in stable condition.
