TULSA, Oklahoma -- A 9-year-old boy is shot and a baby nearly hit when a Tulsa home is sprayed with bullets.

It happened in the 2200 block of E. 10th Street S. just after 2 a.m. Sunday.

Police say the shooter unloaded several rounds into the house striking the 9-year-old in the foot. The baby was sleeping in a basinet and came close to being hit, police say.

"It could have been a lot worse then it ended up being, bad enough that it was," said TPD Sgt. Mark Mears.

Police say there were three other adult females in the home, none of whom suffered any injuries.

Police say no one saw the shooter, leaving investigators with little to go on.
