Ruskin 12-year-old hit by falling bullet improves

TAMPA — The 12-year-old Ruskin boy hit by a falling bullet continued to improve Wednesday.

Doctors upgraded Diego Duran's condition from serious to fair, and his family says he's been able to eat a bit on his own, even lifting a spoonful of pudding to his mouth.

Deputies are still investigating the shooting, which they attribute to "celebratory" fire on New Year's Eve.
