Authorities in North Carolina said a 1-year-old girl was shot while playing outside a home at McDougald Terrace in Durham Sunday afternoon.
The toddler was transferred to a nearby hospital with minor injuries and is expected to be okay.
The child was supervised by a parent who was outside at the time of the incident.
The parent did not get injured, but investigators believe the parent was the target of the shooting, instead of the child, ABC 11 reported.
The shooting happened just after 4:30 p.m. on Truman Street in Durham and was reported by multiple residents, police said.
An active investigation is currently ongoing, and no additional information was released.
Durham County is located about 50 miles from Greensboro and 121 miles from Charlotte in North Carolina.
Earlier this year in January, some residents had to evacuate the community housing area because apartments' furnaces, water heaters, and stoves needed replacement due to exposure to carbon monoxide.
Hundreds of families were evacuated at the time, and some residents just started to return after authorities fixed the households.
