Boy, 8, recovering from gunshot wound


CLEVELAND - The grandmother of an 8-year-old boy shot by his older brother while the two were playing "gangster" says the child is recovering and feeling better.

Anthony Hicks is being treated at MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland for a gunshot wound to his upper chest.

Police said the boys were playing with a gun they found in their grandmother's car.

Anthony's 11-year-old brother, Bishop Hicks, is being held at the Cuyahoga County Juvenile Detention Center.

Cleveland police said Bishop faces a felonious assault charge, and the grandmother, Joan Hicks, will be charged with failure to secure a deadly weapon.
