DURHAM — A Durham boy paralyzed by a bullet will be getting out of the hospital tomorrow.

Last month, Tiquan Mikell was caught in the crossfire of a shootout. It happened while he was walking with his mother on the edge of the Few Gardens apartment complex.

The 5-year-old will stay with a relative until the Durham housing authority finishes a wheelchair accessible home.

The man suspected of shooting Tiquan has not been caught.
