PROVIDENCE, R.I.—Police in Rhode Island say an 18-year-old man and a toddler were shot while riding inside a car.

They walked into Hasbro Children’s Hospital suffering from gunshot wounds, according to NBC10.

Providence Police Maj. David Lapatin says they were shot while they were inside a car driving on Pleasant Valley Parkway at about 9:30 p.m. on March 5.

The teenager, Christian Michaud, was in the passenger seat, and the 2½-year-old boy was in the back.

Police say the teenager suffered serious injuries and was rushed into surgery but is listed in stable condition. Authorities say the toddler was shot in the foot and is expected to be OK.

“The little boy is doing well,” Lapatin told NBC10. “I just went to see him. He’s actually sleeping.”

The driver of the car, a 21-year-old man who is the toddler’s father, was not injured.

Out of caution, the police were turning patients away and Hasbro’s Emergency Room was put under lockdown, according to WPRI.

Police are still looking for the shooter. WPRI reporter says they are looking for a dark-color Honda.
