MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Parents in Raleigh are concerned after a 10-year-old was shot in the leg, while leaving a teen party, in late December.
A mother told police she was leaving the party at Blue Ice with her three children when shots were fired on December 29. One of the bullets struck the back of her 2008 Chevrolet Impala, striking her 10-year-old son. His mother told police she rushed her son to the hospital and found out her son was shot in the leg.
People familiar with the area told WREG's Jonee Lewis the venue is a lounge that is regularly rented out for events. WREG reached out to Blue Ice to learn more about the party but did not get an answer.
Parents say this crime makes them more cautious about letting their kids go anywhere.
"It's really sad and its unsafe because we have to worry about our own kids going anywhere because there's so many people trying to kill innocent children and there's no name on those bullets," one woman said.
