A 12-year-old boy is recovering from minor injuries after police say he was grazed by what they believe was a bullet fragment during a shooting in Logan late Monday afternoon.

Shots rang out on Duncannon Avenue near 9th Street shortly after 4:30 p.m., police said. A 20-year-old man was hit once in the left leg and walked to Albert Einstein Medical Center, where he was placed in stable condition.

A woman later showed up at Einstein with her 12-year-old son, who was suffering a minor graze wound to the stomach, police said. Cops believe he was struck by a bullet fragment during the shooting. He suffered only minor injuries, according to police, and was in stable condition.

Police said they have no description on the shooter, and the incident remains under investigation.
