Durham, N.C. — Durham police are investigating after a toddler was wounded in a drive-by shooting Tuesday afternoon.
Officers responded to a shooting call at 1508 Great Bend Drive just before 3 p.m. and found an 18-month-old boy inside a home who had been shot, authorities said.
The boy was taken to a local hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
Authorities said multiple shots were fired by the occupants of a dark-colored sedan.
"It's like a sign of the times. There's no value for human life, there really isn't," said neighbor Beverly McGill. "I think it's really, really sad that they would come through with no regards for what's going on."
No charges had been filed Tuesday night.
Anybody with information about the incident is asked to call Durham police at 919-560-4281 or Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200.
