Boy shot in Roxbury recovering after surgery

Gabriel Clarke, the 13-year-old boy who was shot in the stomach in Roxbury Friday night as he was walking to choir practice, is recovering after surgery and will probably spend the next 10 days in the hospital, his pastor said on Sunday.

“He’s getting better,” said the Rev. Nigel G. David Sr., pastor of the Berea Seventh-day Adventist Church, who visited Clarke at Boston Medical Center Saturday night. “He told me not to make him laugh, because it hurts.”
