    Police have released surveillance video of three men wanted in the shooting of a 9-year-old boy in the Bronx.

    The boy was walking home from school with his cousins when a stray bullet pierced his foot while he was in front of a bodega in Tremont, according to his family and police.

    [NY] 3 Wanted in Shooting That Wounded Bronx Boy
    Police have released surveillance video of three men wanted in the shooting of a 9-year-old boy in the Bronx.

    Police say three armed men shot at three other men in the area of East 175th Street and Clinton Avenue, then fled in a white Chevy Impala. The boy was the only person hit in the gunfire. 

    "I came out the store, I had my back turned. By the time I turned around, there was two shots and my cousin was on the floor," said the boy's cousin, Michael Harrison. "He said "I'm shot, I'm shot.'"

    [NY] Boy, 9, Struck by Stray Bullet
    A 9-year-old boy was shot in the foot as he was walking home with his cousins near a park in the Bronx Wednesday afternoon, police and family say. Brynn Gingras reports.

    The boy was treated and released from the hospital Wednesday.

    "It doesn't make any sense that we have to come from school and that happens -- just coming from school, you know what I mean? He didn't deserve it at all," said Harrison.

    Anyone who recognizes the men in the surveillance video is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS or at nypdcrimestoppers.com
