Stray bullet kills boy eating pre-bedtime snack
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Police in Kentucky say a stray bullet fired during an outdoor fight traveled through the window of a nearby home, killing a 7-year-old who was eating a bedtime snack at his kitchen table.
Louisville Metro Police spokeswoman Lt. Emily McKinley says it appears a fight broke out Sunday night among a group of people in a yard near the boy's home and someone pulled a gun and began firing.
The coroner's office said in a statement Monday that Dequante William Lamarr Hobbs Jr. died from a gunshot wound to the head.
McKinley urged anyone involved in the fight, including the shooter, to come forward. Police say they have no suspects.
