PHOENIX (3TV/CBS5) -- A boy was grazed by a bullet in a desert area north of Phoenix shooting Saturday night.
Initially reporting this incident around 7:20 p.m near Carefree Highway, the Peoria Police Department said a 9-year-old boy was with his parents in the desert shooting.
At some point a bullet projectile ricocheted off of an unknown object and then grazed the forehead of the child causing a very minor injury.
Near 8 p.m., Capt. Jake Van Hook reported that Phoenix firefighters took the boy with the "graze" injury from the scene for medical care as a precaution.
The boy was stable and talking to firefighters while on the scene.
While Phoenix fire reported that boy's age is 9, Peoria police say he is a young teen.
Peoria police also say this could've been an incident stemming from parents out shooting with children.
The situation is still under investigation.
