A 16-year-old boy is recovering after he was shot in Little Rock on Sunday, authorities said.

The boy, who showed up at Arkansas Children’s Hospital with a gunshot wound in his left leg, told officers he and his cousin were walking to a friend’s house near the 8000 block of Winterwood Drive when a black four-door Buick pulled alongside them and someone inside opened fire, according to a police report.

The injury was described in the report as "minor."

Authorities were called in reference to the shooting just before 5:20 p.m., the report stated.

Investigating officers discovered two shell casings and “a bit of blood,” but no suspects were named and no arrests had been made at the time of the report.

    why don't the injured ever know who their aggressor is ? who did you make mad ? get any recent threats ? see their faces while they blasted you ? sixteen years old if this is happening to the youth now he'll never make it to thirty.

    In Little Rock they really don't need a reason for pistol play.
