HARVEY, La. (AP) - The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office says a 23-month-old boy is now listed in critical but stable condition after an early morning shooting in which four others also were wounded.
As of midday Monday, four men had been arrested and the investigation is continuing.
In addition to the boy, the victims included two toddler girls at Children's Hospital in New Orleans. Their conditions were not released. Two adult women also were wounded and were in stable condition.
The shooting happened around 4 a.m. at an apartment in Harvey. Gunfire broke out when an adult answered the door. The suspects were arrested after a chase into New Orleans, where the suspects abandoned their vehicle, but were caught a short time later.
