Woman, 3-Year-Old Child Shot in Times Square

An unidentified woman and a 3-year-old girl were shot Saturday afternoon in Times Square, the New York Post reported.

According to the report, shots rang out in the popular tourist destination at West 44th Street and Seventh Avenue just before 5 p.m. ET, the Post reported.

The woman was shot in the leg and the young child in the upper torso and were taken to Bellevue Hospital.

The two victims were not related, according to the story, and both were expected to survive.

Witness Sakho Khadim told the Post that he heard 2 shots and then saw “a lot of blood” on the young girl.

“The cops grabbed the baby and put [her] in the ambulance,” Khadim told the Post. “The mother was crying. She said, ‘I’m good.'”

He said she then gave a thumbs up to the police at the scene.

Another witness at a nearby McDonalds said she heard 3 shots and saw a woman she guessed to be in her 20s on the ground crying out for help.

According to the report, the streets around Times Square were closed in the aftermath of the shooting.

Police have not identified the victims and the shooter remains at large.
