EAST HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — A 3-year-old in Connecticut was grazed by a bullet while lying in bed during a drive-by shooting early Saturday, police said.

The child was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, East Haven Police Capt. Joseph Murgo said.

Neighbors reported hearing several gunshots around 1:15 a.m. Saturday, Murgo said. He said officers ultimately determined that someone opened fire from a passenger window in a dark-colored SUV as it sped by.

Investigators believe it was “a targeted attack” and are following several leads, Murgo said.
