4-year old Washington D.C. boy injured in shooting

A 4-year old boy was with others outside his Washington, D.C., home when a shooting occurred.  The boy was wounded in the hand, apparently by a stray bullet.  An adult was also wounded.

From an article:

A spokesman for the D.C. police said that at about 7:56 p.m Saturday, an unknown suspect shot an adult outside of a home in the 1200 block of Savannah Place in Southeast. 
Neighbors reported hearing multiple gunshots. When police arrived, they found the wounded adult outside. Inside the home, a 4-year-old boy had been shot in the hand. 
It was unclear whether the boy and adult victims were related. Both were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Bullets don't know when to stop.
