Joe Nocera at the NYT does a daily collection of incidents. Here's today's, plus some highlights:
Denver, Colo., police are investigating a Monday shooting that left an 8-year-old boy in critical condition. The boy was sitting in the backseat of a car driven by his parents when a bullet entered through the back, near the license plate. It is unclear if the car the boy sat in was targeted or in the wrong place at the wrong time.
A man and woman were shot in front of their house in Dallas, Tex., by the woman’s ex-boyfriend Monday night. Both victims were shot multiple times. The man is expected to survive, but police say the woman is in critical condition. 32-year-old Lenar Alexander Corales was named as a suspect.
