Police: Stamford boy shot by stepfather recovering at UMC

STAMFORD, TX (KCBD) -

An 11-year-old boy from Stamford is recovering at UMC in Lubbock after police say his stepfather shot him Tuesday afternoon.

Stamford is about 45 minutes north of Abilene.

We're told it started as an argument between the young boy's mother, and 24-year-old Michael Quinonez.

Police say the mom asked the boy to hand her a pack of cigarettes and that Quinonez told him not to.

When the little boy handed the cigarettes to his mom, police say Quinonez shot him in the thigh.

The boy was flown to UMC on Tuesday where he is in satisfactory condition.

Quinonez is behind bars in Jones County, facing several charges.
