Child shot while outside South Miami-Dade home

A 10-year-old boy was shot in the leg while enjoying a school-free Monday afternoon outside a South Miami-Dade home, police said.

Though the boy was flown as a trauma alert patient to Nicklaus Children's Hospital, Miami-Dade police said he was "in good condition."

He was outside a house in the 17700 block of Southwest 104th Avenue around 12:30 p.m. when shots crackled through the air and he was hit. Miami-Dade detectives are investigating.
