HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - HEMSI officials confirmed a small child was transported to the hospital after being shot at a home on Lockwood Court in southwest Huntsville.

Police got to the home, near Drake and Triana Boulevard, around 6:30 p.m.

Investigators have not confirmed a suspect in the case and said out of respect for the family they are not releasing any more information at this time.

Officials say the child's injuries were considered serious.
