Child shot in neck with BB gun


SUBURBAN LAKE WORTH, Fla. - A suburban Lake Worth boy is recovering after getting shot in the neck with a BB gun.

Julio Ramirez says he and his son were doing yard work when someone shot the child last Thursday.

The 10-year old went straight into surgery to get the BB removed. The pellet just missed his spine and a major artery.

“We were lucky. If it would be a little bit more to the right or left it would be a different story,” his father said.

Ramirez says whoever shot his son drove off.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office is investigating the case.
