A 9-year-old 7-year-old boy was critically injured in a triple shooting in Mid-City Monday evening.

The shooting happened around 9:05 p.m. last night in the 1900 block of Corning Street, according to the LAPD. The boy was inside a car with his mother after returning home from the laundromat, according to KTLA.

A group of suspects in a white car drove up and opened fire on the boy, his mother and an unindentified 31-year-old man they were with. The suspects fled the scene. One of the adults managed to drive the others to a hospital. The mother of the boy suffered a graze wound, and the man was also hit. But the boy's condition is the most serious—he was shot in the back and is undergoing surgery.

KTLA reports that the suspects fired as many as 25 bullets.
