A 4-year-old boy — sitting in a car seat in his mother’s vehicle — was shot Wednesday in Gary, Indiana, during a drive-by, cops said.
The child was with his mom and her boyfriend, both in the front seat of a parked car, when someone in a silver sedan pulled up and started firing, according to WLS.
Police said the boy suffered graze wounds to his left arm, stomach and back. He was treated at a local hospital and released. His mother was not injured, nor was her boyfriend.
Officials said the youngster was one of three people injured in drive-by shootings on Wednesday.
A man, who was in stable but critical condition, took a total of nine bullets while walking on a Gary street less than two blocks away from where the boy was shot.
Half an hour later, another man — described as a 27-year-old — was also targeted while walking. He suffered a graze wound to his back and was hospitalized, but later released.
Cops have not arrested anyone for the shootings. Despite their close proximity, they don’t believe that the incidents are related.
