MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

One 7-month-old is in the hospital following a shooting on the 700 block of Chesnut Avenue.

The shooting occurred around 9:30 p.m. Saturday.

Lorenzo, 7 months, was taken to Le Bonheur in non-critical condition.

Police said a bullet grazed his arm. They said at least 10 people were inside the home, including six or seven children, but this was the only injury.

"It's terrible, because you never know you always think the worst," a neighbor said.

Family members said while it is scary that someone so young was injured, it could have been worse.

"We are praying for the best and hoping things get better," a family member said.

Police do not have a suspect yet.

Neighbors said they hope whoever shot up their street is caught soon, so they can feel safe once again.

Police are asking anyone with information to call Crimestoppers at 901-528-CASH.
