Child shooting


A Richmond man was in court Wednesday after allegedly shooting a six-year-old boy with a gun earlier this week. Fang Chi, 53, has been charged with multiple firearms offences and criminal negligence causing bodily harm. The boy, a "family friend" visiting from China, is recovering after surgery at B.C. Children's Hospital. Chi remains in custody. Police said a number of firearms were seized from the residence, but wouldn't confirm whether they were registered. The Ministry of Children and Family Development have been notified and are investigating the incident.
