ST. LOUIS — A child was injured after shots were fired into a vehicle in south St. Louis Monday morning.

The call initially came in for a shooting in the 4000 block of Chippewa, but police believe the shots actually were fired in the 3900 block of Ray.

Police officials confirmed with 5 On Your Side the boy is 9 years old. He suffered a graze wound, fire officials added. He was rushed to a nearby hospital with a minor head injury and is stable, police said.

‘At this time we do not believe the juvenile was struck by gunfire,’ police clarified Monday morning.
