Just read this in the paper. He's only 2 years old. He was walking to the shops in Easterhouse with his 13 yr old brother when a sniper shot at a Fire Engine! One of the pellets hit the wee soul in the head. He's in hospital fighting for his life, but his Mum has been told to expect the worst. How awful!

Animals!!!

Just say a wee prayer that he pulls through.

OMG Just heard they've arrested a 27yr old man!! Now a 14 yr old playing with an air rifle shooting at a fire engine for a bit of fun is FAAAAAR less sinister sounding than a 27 yr old man. What was he thinking????

This is so horrible, I read this in the news yesterday.

To hear that this poor little boy has now died makes me so sad. What kind of person would do this?
