Humble, Texas – September 27th, 2016: Two innocent children were shot in the leg Monday evening after getting caught up in gunfire while playing street soccer.
This all unfolded on Grand Linden Court in the Kenswick Meadows subdivision.
Neighbors told KTRK that tension had been brewing between local kids over the past few weeks, and gunshots had rung out before, although nobody had been hit.
Around 6pm Monday evening a fight broke out between two groups of teens, the shooter pulled out a gun and began firing. Two innocent children playing street soccer were struck by flying bullets. The children ages 6 & 11 were both shot in the leg and were taken by ambulance to Texas Children’s Hospital. They are expected to be ok.
