"When do we come together as a community and as a city and say enough is enough? An 11-month-old child was shot two months ago. Last week, a 7-year-old child was shot," Corey said.

Police say the little girl and her dad were not targets.

The 3-year-old victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say there's no description of the driver of the getaway car.
