OTHELLO -- Authorities say a bullet fragment got lodged in a 4-year-old child's head after a drive-by shooting in Othello.
The Tri-City Herald reported that the bullet did not penetrate the child's skull after Friday's shooting. The fragment was removed at Othello Community Hospital and the child was released from the hospital.
Adams County Sheriff Doug Barger said the child and four family members were in a Cadillac around 7:00 p.m. when a brown car pulled up and fired multiple shots using a 9mm pistol. The family then drove about five blocks to their house while the suspects chased them.
Barger said no one in the Cadillac has gang affiliations, though the suspects may. He said police are searching for two males and a third suspect.
