An unidentified four year old was grazed in the head. The child's injuries were non-life threatening.

Neighbors say they are shocked by the crime. "I'm really shocked to drive up to my driveway and get news such as this the neighborhood is usually pretty quiet but when something like this happen you have to wonder. I just pray to god that the child is fine," said Brenda Parker.

Police are searching for three black males, one has been identified as Terenthyne Chambers.

The trio fled in a white Dodge Magnum.
