A 13-year-old boy suffered a graze wound from a bullet fired into a house during an attempted robbery Thursday evening in the city's Wissinoming section, police said.
About 7:50 p.m. in the 4000 block of Creston Street, a 34-year-old man was on the steps of his residence when two males attempted to rob him, said Chief Inspector Scott Small.
The man fled into the house, and one of the males fired at least three shots through the doorway, including one through the door that had been slammed shut, Small said.
The boy was in the dining room and was grazed in the abdomen. He was taken to St. Christopher's Hospital for Children and was listed in stable condition. No one else in the house - including an infant - was hurt. A plastic bag containing what appeared to be marijuana was found on the porch, Small said. - Robert Moran
