According to news Channel 4 & 5 the police are still searching for the suspect that is responsible for the shooting death of this child. It's very scary to think this person is still on the loose.

was it an adult or kid that shot him? Was he just outside minding his own business and someone came up and just starting shooting? I agree with you a 100% I hope they catch this sick SOB and he pays big time for what he's done to this child and the rest of his family. Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers tonight and may god wrap his arms around this child's mother and give her the strength and will to get through the most difficult thing any parent will ever have to go through. I'm so sorry for your loss.

I live at a house nearby, and just noticed all the lights and police outside. Its very scary to hear that such activity took place such a short distance away. I heard no gunshots, which makes me fear that this could of been premeditated, however, im no forensics expert. There was a police officer sitting near the area where this happened last night, and we were wondering what was going on outside during this time as well. I question why an officer was nearby the area several hours before the incident. Could they have been anticipating something to happen and trying to prevent it? My thoughts and prayers go out to this boys family and friends, and I hope and pray that the person who did this is caught and pays the price.

according to fox 2 news, this child was outside with other people and was shot by someone in a car. this sounds like a drive-by shooting, however the gcpd says it wasnt.then what would that be called? if you drive by and shoot someone,thats a drive-by!sounds like to me gcpd doesnt want to label gc. like it couldnt happen here. hopefully this will be an isolated incident and gc will not become another north st louis city. prayer to this childs family,especially his mother,my heart goes out to her, no mother should have to bury their gift from god.hopefully the major case squad has been activated.

We need to come together and take GC back from these drug heads and gangs. Idk if this was a drug or gang related shooting but the fact is that a CHILD has died. I never had to deal with stuff like this when I went to school. I now have a child the same age as this child that was shot and this scares me! Kids are getting beat into these damn Mexican gangs lately and then the gangs jump other innocent kids for no reason. Come on GC! Snitch, snitch, snitch and lets take our streets back!!!!

You won't stop them.. They're like a plague. I wouldn't be surprised if MS13 is in this town..If that's the case, get the heck out, or let GCPD get a but more brutal.

I enjoy that granite is becoming a diverse community, but I don't need your gangs, contribute..Be a neighbor, I have no problem with it.

Do this.... We have a problem

It's heart breaking to think that ,'at the wrong place at the wrong time,' equals a young boy at home at 9:30 pm on a school night. Thoughts and prayers to the family and friends.
