The doctors treating a five-year-old boy whose home was shot up and firebombed by gunmen in York Town, Clarendon on Friday, say they are unable to remove a bullet lodged in his spine.

The physicians say this will likely leave him paralyzed from the waist down.

Meanwhile, three others, including the boy’s mother, remain hospitalised.

The police are still searching for the attackers.

It is reported that on Friday a group of gunmen entered the house and robbed occupants of their valuables.

It is further reported that one of the occupants attempted to escape and was shot several times.

The gunmen then reportedly opened fire on the other persons, including the five-year-old boy.

The men firebombed the house before escaping on foot.
