THE BRONX - A 5-year-old boy is recovering at home after he was shot in the leg today while walking home with his mother.

Maritze Santa says she and her son Adonte were leaving the grocery store when halfway down the block gunshots rang out.

Police say the bullets hit Santa's son and a 44-year-old man. Investigators believe someone seeking revenge on a rival gang fired shots from a nearby roof.

Santa and her family say they're relieved the incident didn't turn tragic. Police are offering a $12,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest in the shooting.
