2 year old Cleveland boy shot while in his home

This two year old was just sitting in his house when a bullet from outside came through the house and hit him in the head. His adult babysitter was also hit with a bullet. From the article:
The 48-year-old woman was baby sitting the child when they were shot about 2 p.m., police said. The woman was hit in the hand and the child was shot in the head. Both are being treated at University Hospitals Case Medical Center. No further information about their conditions or identities is yet available.
The woman's teenage son was in a verbal fight with three men earlier in the afternoon, and she separated the group and went into the house, in the 1000 block of East 76th Street, according to police. Shortly after, someone shot a gun into the home, and a single shot hit her and the child.
Children should be safe from bullets inside of their own homes. And bullets should not be flying in the streets of our communities no matter who is shooting them.

UPDATE (5/15/12):  According to a different article, the boy's name is Di'rico Washington, and the shooting happened as a result of an accident from inside the home.
