8-year-old boy shot in the chest

An 8-year-old boy was shot in Valencia on Friday night and is currently warded in a stable condition at hospital.

Kalum St Bernard was in the company of his mother, 29-year-old Numi St Bernard of Emon Lane, Valencia and other siblings around 10:17 pm on Friday night, when they began hearing several loud explosions.

When the sounds subsided, Kalum complained about a burning sensation on his upper left chest.

Upon checking, his mother observed what appeared to be a gunshot wound on her son.  Blood was said to be oozing from the wound in his chest.

He was rushed to the hospital where he underwent emergency surgery. 

The police also made checks and interviewed several persons along the road, but no useful information was received.

Police have obtained CCTV footage to determine exactly what happened.
