Police say a two-year-old was shot in the hand when suspects tried to rob a group that was filming a music video late Tuesday in Tacoma.

According to Tacoma Police, officers were called around 11:20 p.m. to the report of shots fired near S. 8th St. and S. M St.

When officers arrived, a woman who was holding her daughter said the girl had been shot in the finger.

The 2-year-old was taken with non life-threatening injuries to a nearby hospital.

Police said witnesses told them that they were shooting a music video when suspects drove up and tried to rob them. The victims said they ran into a home as multiple shots were fired at them.

Engaging with youth in Tacoma could help build positive connections, increase safety

As gun violence increases at a concerning rate in Tacoma, more children are at the center of those crimes. In one case, two teenagers were charged as adults for the death of a 14-year-old girl who was shot in July.

No further details have been released.
