Bill Cosby departs after his sexual assault trial, Tuesday, April 17, 2018, at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pa.

    Prosecutors are expected to read a transcript of the 2005 testimony, saving for the very end of their case Cosby's own words about using the 1970s party drug "the same as a person would say, 'Have a drink.'"

Sheriff's officials say a 6 year old West Palm Beach boy was injured in a shooting last night in Belle Glade. Someone fired at the car he was in with his mother in an apparent case of mistaken identity.

He had a close call last night, but he's alive and his mother says he's already out of the hospital.

"I'm glad he's OK," said their neighbor Aileen Trabal.

Aileen Trabal knows little 6 year old Tinoris Williams  Jr. pretty well. She sees him playing around the neighborhood, riding his scooter all the time.

Bullets were flying last night in Belle Glade, and Tinoris was fragments hit him in the back while riding in the back seat of a car.

The West Palm Beach boy will be a first-grader this fall at Benoist Farms Elementary.

Sheriff's investigators say about 11:30 Monday night.. someone opened fire, shooting at the car as it headed north on Southwest 7th Street.

There were four people in the car, including the 6 year old boy and his mother who was driving.

It's unclear how many shots were fired, but detectives found three spent shell casings at the scene.

Authorities say it appears the people who shot at the car thought they were firing at somebody else.

Six-year old Tinoris Williams and the others in the car were not the intended targets, but their car  -- a red Infiniti G-35 -- is  similar to a red Lexus the shooters had been looking for.

Tinoris' dad is a law enforcement officer.

The sheriff's office says they don't have any description of the suspect or suspects in the shooting, because witnesses at the scene last night in Belle Glade were uncooperative.
