3-year old Brooklyn boy shot in crossfire

Isaiah Gonzalez, age 3
Only two days ago, a 7-year old was killed by gunfire in Brooklyn.

Today, a 3-year old was nearly killed there as well, Isaiah Gonzalez.  He was playing with his mother when they were caught in the crossfire between two gunmen.  The boy was injured in the leg.

From an article:
A 3-year-old boy was shot in the leg after getting caught in the middle of a shootout in Brooklyn in broad daylight today, police sources said.
The child was playing with his mother in the courtyard of 383 Pulaski St. in Bedford-Stuyvesant around 4 p.m. when he was caught in the crossfire between two gunmen, cops said. About 10 shots were fired.
It was unclear whether the gunmen were firing at each other or if they were both shooting at the same target.
One of the alleged shooters fled in a Nissan Altima. There have been no arrests.
Cops said that suspects are men between the ages of 18 and 20.
