It happened at around 5 a.m. at a house in the 500 block of Joseph E. Boone Boulevard in northwest Atlanta.

The boy told police he was asleep in bed when the sound of gunshots outside woke him up. He then felt pain in his right leg and realized he'd been hit. He was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in stable condition.

Atlanta Police spokeswoman Kim Jones said the ground outside the victim's house was littered with shell casings from several weapons.
