A little boy can’t even watch the frickin’ fireworks in peace:
COUNCIL BLUFFS — Jim Riddle couldn’t figure out why his 7-year-old grandson wouldn’t come back outside to watch the neighborhood fireworks show.
It was about 10:30 p.m. Saturday, and Riddle’s grandson, Leyton McNabb, was nowhere to be found as the fun was getting started.
“It was like we had front-row seats,” said Riddle. “Then, my wife started screaming.”
Riddle rushed inside, and saw that Leyton, who will be a second-grader at Franklin Elementary School, was bleeding from his right shoulder. Patricia Riddle tried to stop the bleeding using a dish towel, thinking the boy had been struck by fireworks. But upon closer examination, the startled grandparents realized Leyton had been hit by a bullet.
