TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Police say a 4-year-old boy is in stable condition after being shot in the arm while he was walking with his mother outside an apartment complex in Tampa.

The shooting happened Monday morning at the Tampa Gardens Apartments. Police say the bullet traveled about 250 yards and hit the boy. They’re searching for two suspects.

Hillsborough County school officials put three schools on full lockdown and two others on modified lockdown while authorities searched for the suspects. But police say they’re now searching in a different location, so the lockdowns have been lifted.

No further details were immediately available.
