OMAHA, Neb. (AP) A 17-month-old boy was injured in an Omaha shooting on Sunday, but police say he is expected to survive the incident.

Omaha Police say the shooting was reported around 4:39 a.m. Sunday in northeast Omaha.

Police say the boy was being placed into a car by his father when a suspect in another vehicle driving by opened fire.

The boy’s injuries were likely caused by broken glass or shrapnel. Police are looking for a Jeep Liberty SUV that may have been involved.

The incident was one of several shootings reported in Omaha.

Four other women were also injured in two separate overnight shootings in Omaha. None of those injuries are believed to be life threatening.
