    First of all these boys that were shot at were children. They were not exchanging fire, they were in front of there home, minding their own business, when this occurred. So before anybody says anything negative on here, just realized that maybe people that care about this kid, that is in the hospital fighting for his life, is reading and very disappointed in the news for not getting the real facts before they decided to write this article.
