After travelling to the incorrect home in Kansas City, Missouri, to pick up his siblings, a teenager was shot and hurt by a resident, according to police.

According to Kansas City Police, when officers arrived at the scene of a reported shooting on the evening of April 13 they discovered a youngster who had been shot by a homeowner outside of a house.

The teen was transferred to a nearby hospital, where, according to authorities, he was listed in a stable condition on Sunday.

Police discovered that the teen's parents had requested him to pick up his brothers at a residence on 115th Terrace, but he had inadvertently gone to a residence on 115th Street instead, where he was shot.

According to a joint statement from civil rights lawyers S. Lee Merritt and Benjamin Crump, who have been hired by the victim and his family, the teen has been identified as 16-year-old high school junior Ralph Yarl.

Ralph is alive and healing, the lawyers stated in a statement, "despite the seriousness of his injuries and condition."

Due to the necessity to get a formal statement from the victim and to gather further forensic evidence, the homeowner was brought into jail and put on a 24-hour detention before being released pending additional investigation.

According to Missouri state law, a suspect in a felony inquiry may be detained for up to 24 hours before either being charged or being released, according to Graves.

According to CNN station KSHB, the incident sparked a demonstration in Kansas City on Sunday, with hundreds assembling outside the house where Yarl was shot.

According to video from CNN affiliate KMBC, protesters carried posters that read "The shooter should do the time" and "Ringing a doorbell is not a crime" as they marched while yelling "justice for Ralph" and "Black lives matter."
