4-year old injured in drive by shooting of Vicksburg home

A 4-year old boy named Arkeevian Warfield and 11 other children were home at a house in Vicksburg, Mississippi, when suddenly "a rainstorm of bullets" came flying through the home.

From the article:

[Arkeevian's aunt Mekeita Buck] said after calling police, she noticed the child had been shot once in the knee, leg, ankle and groin. An ambulance took the child to River Region medical center where he was stabilized and then transported to the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, and his family said he is expected to make a full recovery.
The article didn't speculate about who the shooter was or their motivation.
