    A 3-year-old Massachusetts boy was injured Saturday after fragments from a stray bullet grazed his leg inside his grandparent's home in Brockton.

    Family members told necn that the boy is already back at his own home recovering. Both family and neighbors said they are frustrated with the violence in the area.

    "I walk this street everyday to get to the park and I'm going to have to take a different route if this continues," said neighbor Jeff Pratt. It's Saturday in the middle of the day and you have to have a lot of courage to do that in the daytime."

    Police said another stray bullet struck a nearby mail truck parked on the street. The mail carrier was not hurt.

    So far, police have not made any arrests.
