Young Baseball Player Hit In Head By Stray Bullet

An 11-year-old New York City baseball player preparing for a team photo was shot in the head by an apparent stray bullet.

A police spokesman says the boy is in stable condition. The boy's family told investigators he was taking a picture with his team Sunday evening in Brooklyn when he grabbed his head and started crying.

Relatives initially thought he'd been struck by a baseball.

Police say it was only after he was rushed to a hospital that the family learned a bullet had lodged between the boy's skin and skull.

Investigators have no motives or suspects in the shooting.
