The violence unfolded around 3:20 p.m. Sunday, when at least one suspect fired into the parking lot of a strip mall in the city’s Central District, according to police and The Seattle Times.

The toddler was struck, in addition to three adult men, according to authorities.

“When a 2-year-old is the victim of a shooting, it’s a really tough thing, even for officers to respond to,” Seattle police spokesperson Detective Valerie Carson told the Times.

The youngest victim remained in critical condition as of Sunday evening, Harborview Medical Center spokesperson Susan Gregg told the paper, and the two men taken there were listed in satisfactory condition.
