BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Buffalo Police say a three-year-old boy was critically injured in a quadruple shooting late Monday night.

Officers say the shooting happened in the first block of Donovan Drive just after 11:00 p.m., when someone opened fire into a large group of people that was gathered outside.

Four people were hit, including the toddler, who is in critical condition at Oishei Children's Hospital.

The other three victims are all 27 and 28-year-old men; two of which were taken to ECMC immediately after being shot and are still being treated.

The third man arrived at ECMC later with a minor wound. Police say a bullet grazed his foot and has been treated and released.

This shooting adds to an already violent Fourth of July holiday weekend, in which 14 other people were shot within three days.

The police department is asking anyone with information to contact its confidential tip line at (716) 847-2255.
