Investigators were still investigating the incident Sunday afternoon, said police spokeswoman Laura Hourigan. The boy, who was not identified, was walking with two older males, whom he knew, Hourigan said.
Were still trying to figure out all of what happened, she said. When you hear an innocent five-year-old, or any child, being hurt, its sad.
