PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia police are investigating the shooting of two young children, a man and a woman in the city’s Point Breeze section.

According to authorities, the shooting happened just before 7:30 p.m. Tuesday night in the 1200 block of South Bucknell Street.

Police say a 2-year-old girl was shot twice, once in the stomach and once in the hand. She is listed in critical condition at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. A 10-year-old boy was shot in the leg and is in stable condition at CHOP.

The woman, 59-years-old and presumed to be the children’s grandmother, is being treated at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Her condition is unknown.

Police later confirmed there was a fourth shooting victim, a 25-year-old who was taken to Methodist Hospital.

In a press conference, Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey said a fight that started at South Philadelphia High School earlier in the day between two young women lead to the shooting.

One of the girls involved in the fight was visiting her grandmother on Bucknell Street when a large group approached the house and another fight broke out.
Police say a group of men began fighting with golf clubs and sticks before shots rang out.

Police are searching for a suspect described as a black male, between the ages of 25-30, 6 feet tall, and weighing 210 pounds. He was last seen wearing a white t-shirt, blue jeans, and a black fitted baseball cap.
