Mayor Walsh Says 10-Year-Old Boston Girl Struck By Stray Bullet In Roxbury Is Recovering

A 10-year-old Boston girl struck by a stray bullet last weekend is improving but faces a lengthy recovery.

Mayor Marty Walsh told the Rev. Bruce Wall's Boston Praise Radio program on Friday that the girl has been upgraded to good condition but has a long road ahead of her, physically and psychologically.

Police say the girl was struck in her apartment in the city's Roxbury neighborhood at about 5:30 p.m. April 18 when a gun went off in an adjacent unit.

No arrests have been announced.
