DETROIT (AP) â€" An 8-year-old boy who was sleeping early Wednesday died after a bullet fired from outside went through the home's wall and into his bedroom, hitting him, Detroit police said. The child was struck once about 1:15 a.m. Wednesday at the Brewster Homes complex on Detroit's east side, Officer Adam Madera said, and pronounced dead about 45 minutes later at Children's Hospital of Michigan. An autopsy is scheduled Thursday, Wayne County medical examiner's office spokeswoman Mary Mazur said. The boy's name wasn't released by police, but The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press identify him as Jakari Pearson. Neighbors and passers-by started a makeshift memorial of stuffed bears, dogs and other toy animals on the front porch of the home. Late Wednesday morning, police still were at Jakari's home, a corner unit of several attached row houses.
