16-month old boy injured by drive-by stray bullet in Connecticut

Tramire Miller, age 16-months
16-year old Tramire Miller was shot and injured in the abdomen while sitting outside his home in New Haven, Connecticut, by an apparent stray bullet.

From an article:

A stray bullet hit Tramire Miller in the abdomen while he was sitting with family on the front stoop of a home on Kensington St. on October 10.  
He was rushed to surgery and has since been released from the hospital. 
Police said they believe the two suspects are members or associates of the Grape Street Crips based in New Haven and the shooting stemmed from a feud with a rival gang.
Tramire's father, Timothy Miller, said he does not believe his son was targeted, but does not feel safe in his neighborhood. 
“I think he was just caught in the middle of a cross-fire that anybody could've gotten hit,” Timothy Miller said. "I'm not comfortable now, letting him out of my sight. It's serious." 
Police have also seized two guns that were allegedly fired during the drive-by. 
New Haven Police said that they expect to make more arrests in connection with this incident.
