A St. Petersburg woman was shot in the hand and a Jacksonville boy was struck in the foot by stray bullets in separate New Year's Eve incidents.
The woman was injured as she was sitting on a patio at the St. Pete Yacht Club just after midnight, authorities said. She was taken to a nearby hospital to have the bullet removed. The 57-year-old woman has not been identified yet but will be OK, according to MyFoxTampaBay.com.
The 8-year-old boy was struck in the foot while waiting to watch fireworks in downtown Jacksonville just before midnight, Jacksonville.com reports. He was transported to Shands Jacksonville with non-life-threatening injuries, the website reported.
The shootings come a year after 12-year-old Diego Duran was struck in the head by a stray bullet. He spent several months in the hospital. His family now advocates against celebratory gunfire with their "Bullet Free Sky" initiative.
