A 13-year-old who police said was an innocent victim was shot in the stomach last night on a Roxbury street while walking to church for choir practice.
The victim was taken to Boston Medical Center after the 7:10 p.m. shooting on Humboldt Avenue. Police said he is in critical condition and that his mother was by his side.
Police said they are looking for a gray vehicle tied to the shooting at the corner of Homestead Street.
Danielle Hunter, 29, said she stayed holed up in her home after she heard four shots.
The violence its just terrible. Its not just guns. Its all kinds of violence, Hunter said.

Why would someone shoot a 13 year old walking to church? Sickening.
In Roxbury,it’s as common as the sun coming up.....
Roxbury has always (I’m 65, left Boston in ‘76) been a bad placer to be.
Isn’t it interesting that in Democrat strongholds we have bad guys shooting the innocent and in Republican strongholds we have the innocent shooting the bad guys trying to do them wrong?
I’m shocked and disappointed by your comment. So wrong.
Sorry...I was kidding. Come on it is Saturday morning, early, no coffee. I am especially sorry to disappoint you.
While young men are routinely shot down, the progressives busy themselves with blocking police from doing their jobs and grabbing guns from lawful owners. See these 2 articles http://www.nydailynews.com/nypd-controversial-stop-frisk-policy-ruled-unconstitutional-article-1.1235578#bmb=1

No humor on Free Republic this morning. Man I guess I will stick to being serious from now on. Joking around here is a tough business.
Okay, I didn’t get it. I think we should ask the mods to pull your post and responses to it. What do you think?
“No humor on Free Republic this morning. Man I guess I will stick to being serious from now on. Joking around here is a tough business.”
I believe you were just being goofy. You’re a common sense sort. You already know there is no acceptable joke available when it comes to the topic of gunning down a child. Be proud your fellow freepers chimed in. You wouldn’t want that line to be broadcast on MSNBC as an example of freeper “hate” and “coldness.”
The most likely explanation is that they missed who they were really aiming at.

So 100 percent true. I was just trying to be funny and it failed. It will cause me to be more careful in being “stupid” in the future.
Can you please pull post number 6. It was not serious and has caused a lot of disappointment among my FREEPER FRiends understandably. Thank you!
There was nothing even remotely humorous about your comment.
I’m curious as to whether the gun was legally purchased and carried by the shooter. (Not really as I already know the answer, I do believe.)
