Someone was shot in the face yesterday in Madison, Illinois. It was a two-year-old boy. He was sitting on his grandfather's lap around 5:45 p.m. when it happened. The bullet apparently came through the window, randomly, from two blocks away.

The PD says the kid was taken to St. Louis Hospital, "breathing, conscious and alert."
