Three men have been charged in connection with the fatal shooting of a 1-year-old boy in Pittsburgh, Pa., according to officials and reports.

Pittsburgh Police announced Friday morning the arrest of 29-year-old Andre Crawford, Devon Thompson, 36, and 41-year-old Marvin Hill in connection with the murder.

Zykier Young was sleeping in a bed in his family’s apartment on Aug. 24 when he was struck in the head by a bullet that traveled through two walls before it hit him, authorities said.

He was rushed to an area hospital, but could not be saved.

Authorities have not said what sparked the shootout, which apparently involved several people. Numerous shots were fired during the exchange, but no other injuries were reported.

Police told WPXI-TV Pittsburgh they used surveillance footage to link Crawford to the crime, though investigators have not revealed whom they suspect of firing the bullet that struck the toddler. Each of the three men was charged with criminal homicide, criminal attempted homicide and gun-related offenses, police said.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
