Stray bullet injures boy sleeping in bed

A 6-year-old asleep in his own bed suffered a wound from a stray bullet early Tuesday.

The boy was hit in the neck by a bullet that appeared to come through the roof of the family home in San Sebastián, López Mateos. The mother said she became aware of the injury when the boy cried out about 1:30 a.m.

The boy was reported out of danger at the Hospital de Niños later Tuesday.

Investigators speculated that someone was firing into the air nearby.
