"Bullet will stay in the back of boy shot near Farview Park"

The bullet that hit a Minneapolis boy Friday will stay in his back for the rest of his life.

Truvontee McElroy, 11, was shot in the stomach while waiting at a bus stop near Farview Park. A 15-year-old girl was shot in the leg during the same incident.

McElroy was shot in the stomach. The bullet cut his colon in half before embedding itself in one of his back muscles. According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, doctors are weary of removing the bullet as a risk of injuring McElroy more.

McElroy and the other victim were shot near 29th and Lyndale Avenues at 5:45 p.m. Friday from a few blocks away. While police said they have information on the suspect, they have declined to release anything.

No arrests have yet been made.
