LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Police say a six-year-old boy was shot in the chest during a neighborhood birthday party in suburban Atlanta.

Gwinnett County police Sgt. Jake Smith says the boy was found with a small wound on chest Saturday evening at a neighborhood in unincorporated Lawrenceville. Smith says the boy was shot by a small caliber bullet, not a BB or pellet.

Smith says the boy was taken to the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston and in serious condition. But Smith says the boy is expected to survive his injury and has been able to walk and speak normally.

No suspects are in custody and no charges have been filed.
