RICHMOND, Calif. (AP) - A baby wounded by gunfire in a Richmond neighborhood has been released from the hospital after undergoing surgery to remove a bullet fragment from his neck.

KGO-TV reports that the 1-year-old boy was released from Oakland Children's Hospital Friday.

His mother said the baby was responsive and appeared "perfectly fine."

He was struck while his grandmother fed him inside an apartment Thursday afternoon.

Police say the bullets came from outside the unit, and the intended target appears to have been a person on a bicycle in the street.

They have not identified a suspect, but are investigating the incident as potentially gang-related.

Police are also looking into whether a person who turned up at a hospital with a gunshot wound to his leg is connected to this shooting or another incident.
