5-year old Massachussetts boy and his father shot after leaving daycare

A 5-year old boy had just been picked up by his father and was leaving his daycare, in Holyoke, Massachussetts, when they were shot.  The boy was hit in a knee.

The article did not indicate who the shooter was, a motive, or where the man was injured.

Both wounds are non-life threatening.

From an article:

 5-year-old boy and 26-year-old man believed to be that child's father are recovering after being shot at Lyman and North Summer Street in Holyoke Wednesday afternoon.
According to police, the child was shot in the knee and has what are believed to be non-life-threatening injuries. 
There are no details at this time about where the man was shot, but police say that his injuries appear to be non-life-threatening as well. 
The shooting was reported at about 12:30 p.m. 
"The investigation is ongoing," said Lt. Matthew Moriarty. "We did have a few people come forward and give us bits of information and that's why our investigation is getting more than one prong right now." 
A neighbor told CBS 3 the child and his father were leaving a daycare across the street when the shooting happened. ....
Police say they do not have any suspects at this time and are hoping for the public's help in finding the person responsible. 
"We're kind of hoping that the public will make a stand against this type of individual, that someone in their own neighborhood, especially a 5-year-old boy, has been shot," said Moriarty. "We're hoping to get a little more information as for the degree of how heinous this crime is right now."
