Three people were shot in Chicago on Thursday, including a 5-month-old baby. According to police, the victims were walking down a sidewalk in Chicago’s Old Town neighborhood when an unknown number of people pulled up in a vehicle and opened fire.

The baby suffered a graze wound on his head, while a 25 and a 19-year-old suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Police were able to track the vehicle down and two people have been taken into custody. Officials were quick to denounce the violence

This is not normal for anyone, whether it’s Chicago or any other city around this country,” stated Deputy Superintendent Eric Carter. “It is quite heartbreaking, so to speak, to see that everybody has no disregard for anyone’s life, let alone for a 5-month-old child.”

The shooting remains under investigation and followed four consecutive weekends of elevated violence in the city.
