8-year-old shot at BX bodega still recovering 1 month later

THE BRONX - A month after 8-year-old Armando Vigo was shot inside a Soundview bodega, Vigo is still recovering.

Vigo says he still has a bullet lodged in his back and frequently travels to the doctor to re-learn how to move his left arm and shoulder.

He also says he has nightmares about Feb. 21, the night he was shot.

Police say Vigo was shot by 15-year-old Eduardo Rodriguez in a gang-related shooting, though Rodriguez was targeting someone else.

Rodriguez is expected to be arraigned tomorrow on multiple charges, including attempted murder.
