Houston Police Department responded to the call around 9 p.m. from a home in the 5900 block of Bissonnet. There, they found the juvenile injured, said Lt. Larry Crowson with the Houston Police Department.

The child, whose name and age have not been released, is expected to survive. He was shot a few blocks to the north and then walked to his cousin’s apartment on Bissonnet.
