WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — A 9-year-old North Carolina boy is in critical but stable condition after he was shot in the neck, police said Thursday.
Winston-Salem police Lt. Gregory Dorn said the boy was shot Wednesday while he was in a vehicle trying to leave a location, the Winston-Salem Journal reported. Dorn said the shooting followed an argument between two adults.
