Boy injured in Amarillo shooting

A boy and a 20-year old man were injured in gunfire in Amarillo, Texas.

From the article:
About 11:10 p.m., police responded to a shooting call in the 3600 block of Nueches Avenue, where a Hispanic boy had been shot in his upper-right arm and a Hispanic 20-year-old man had been shot in his right wrist, Barbee said. The two went to the hospital with injuries that did not appear to be life threatening, he said.
Witnesses told officers six people, including the two victims, were in front of the home, standing near a parked vehicle when they heard about 20 shots coming from the alley north of the house, Barbee said.
Witnesses said they saw three or four people run to a vehicle in the alley and enter the vehicle before it drove off, he said.
Bullets hit the victims, the vehicle the victims were standing near and the house they were in front of, and officers found 18 spent cartridge casings of two calibers in the alley, Barbee said.
No age or name was given for the boy.
