A 13-year-old who police said was an innocent victim was shot in the stomach tonight on a Roxbury street while walking to a nearby church. The victim was taken to Boston Medical Center following the 7:09 p.m. shooting at the corner of Humboldt and Homestead streets. He was said to be in critical condition. About two dozen plainclothes gang unit officers swarmed at the scene in the pouring rain to investigate.
