8-year-old shot, lives with bullet inside shoulder

A Bronx second-grader allegedly shot by a gang member will have to live with a bullet in his shoulder because doctors fear complications trying to remove it, his relatives said Monday.

Armando Bigo, 8, was released from Jacobi Hospital yesterday, six days after being wounded in a Bronx bodega by a stray shot fired by one gang member at another.

“He’s doing fine. He’s playing with his toys. He’s having a little pain because they’ve not removed the bullet,” said his aunt, Ellie Flores. But she added, “We’re happy he’s doing a lot better.”
