Police: Shot fired at Virginia home, boy suffers graze wound

LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) — Police say a 10-year-old boy was injured when someone fired a shot at a home in Lynchburg.

Police say officers were called to Grady Street around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday for a report of shots fired.

Police say officers learned that a home had been struck by gunfire when people were inside, including a 10-year-old boy who suffered a grazing gunshot wound. The child was treated at the scene for a superficial injury and police say no one else was injured.

Police are asking anyone who may have captured video of the suspects on security cameras to contact the department.
