The 16 year old victim sustained a gunshot wound to the right thigh and was transported to Baylor hospital. He is currently in stable condition.
The 9 year old victim sustained a gunshot wound to the abdomen and was transported to Children’s hospital and is also in stable condition. The 9 year old was walking into the gas station with his father when he was struck. The 9 year old victim appears to be an innocent bystander at this time.
