A 13-year-old boy was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in critical condition after being shot around 8:30 p.m. Friday in the 5500 block of West Jackson Boulevard in South Austin.

Two groups of people got into a “heated” argument, and someone pulled out a gun and fired shots, according to the police, who said the boy, who was standing down the street, was hit by a stray bullet in the lower back.
