A 9-year-old boy was shot after he confronted a group of teens with his uncle over a stolen bicycle.

Ronell Gurley has an angelic face, eyelashes a mile long, tubes up and down his little arms and a bullet lodged in the back of his shoulder bone.

It was senseless gunfire that erupted in a crowded Canarsie Brooklyn housing development Thursday evening, over a bike owned by Ronell's uncle.

It had been taken by a group of teens from a nearby bodega that was then spotted with the bike near some benches.

Ronell went with his uncle to demand the bike back.

Cousin Blist Gurley saw one of the teens make a move.

Edna Gurley, who lives in the complex, watched her grandson run toward her.

Detectives quickly charged a 15 year old with being the shooter and also arrested a 19 year old.
