Once on the scene, the EPD ascertained that a 14-month-old baby girl had received a direct gunshot wound.

According to reports, the EPD have stated that there were several residents within the apartment when the incident occurred.

As of this time, law enforcement have an 18 year-old suspect in custody, yet are currently investigating whether the shooting was intended or accidental.

The EPD reported that after the citizens within the apartment realized the baby had received injuries from the shot, they proceeded to assault the 18-year-old who is now in custody. From there, the suspect ran down Florence St. in what the EPD says he claims was an attempt to escape. In was during this sprint that police apprehended the teenager.

Fortunately, the 14 month-old child is expected to make a full recovery.

According to current reports from officials, the bullet grazed the female infant, missing all major organs.
