LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The family of the 9-year-old boy shot while playing in a Louisville park is sharing pictures of his recovery.

They've identified the child as Ki'Anthony Tyus. He's smiling in the image at right, but we're told the bullet did significant damage to his leg.

Tyus is still recovering and is in fair condition after surgery at Kosair Children's Hospital. He was shot at Ballard Park around 9:30 Monday night. Police say the shooting appears to be random, and have made no arrests.

It was one of three separate shootings within a 24-hour period.
