The first homicide occurred early Tuesday evening when an African-American male in his 20's was fatally wounded on Wabada. He was transported to a hospital where he later died from his gunshot wounds.

The other shooter in the incident on N. Adelaide was on foot, described as a black male, mid-to-late 30's, 6′ tall weighing 240 lbs. Police say one suspect opened fire from another vehicle, possibly a four-door silver sedan, while another suspect was on foot.

Police said two suspects then opened fire.

Police say he was taken to Children's Hospital by his father, who himself had been shot in the leg.

Police say the 6-year-old was shot in the head and is listed in critical but unstable condition.

The final shooting victim was found left for dead in a street around 8 p.m. Tuesday. When she went out to check on it, someone shot at her, striking her one time in the leg.
