  A 12-year old boy in the passing truck received minor injuries when the truck was hit, however police confirmed he was not struck by the bullet.  One investigating officer noted that a speaker inside the truck stopped the bullet and that if it round had been five to six inches higher, things could have been much worse for the child.
