Summer violence is on the rise all across the country...
"Prince George’s County Police say a five-year-old boy shot a four-year-old boy on a playground in the 4400 block of 23rd Parkway in Hillcrest Heights.
Police are still trying to figure out where the five-year-old boy was able to access the gun. They believe he found it in the home, but don't know whose gun it is.
Police say the bullet passed right through the upper part of the four-year-old’s torso.
Ebony Webb says she was there when the four-year-old boy ran into his apartment after he was shot. She called 911 and helped clean the wound. Officials transported the four-year-old to Children’s Hospital. Authorities say the gunshot wound is not life-threatening." read more - via MyFoxDC
