13-year-old Allegedly Robs and Shoots 11-year-old in Montgomery Co.
From Montgomery County -- An 11-year-old boy is recovering in a Birmingham hospital after deputies say he was robbed and shot. The suspect: a 13-year-old boy.
Silence fills the Flatwood Community. Toys lie on the side of the road, left behind as children flee the scene.
The Montgomery Sheriff's Office says Sunday afternoon, a 13-year-old boy walked up to a group of children playing on Cobb Lane, robbed an 11-year-old boy, and then shot him in the abdomen.
"It could have very well happened to my child," she says. "I don't believe it happened on purpose."
Sheriff's deputies say they are still trying to find out where the 13-year-old boy got the gun.
