    Three people are in custody in connection to the shooting of a 3-year-old boy Friday night and charges are pending, police said.

    The 3-year-old was shot around 10:15 p.m. in the 4400 block of South Sacramento Avenue, police said.

    The boy was standing on the sidewalk with his mother and a man when another man walking past them with two women turned and opened fire, according to authorities.

    The bullet struck the young boy in his abdomen and exited through his hip, officials said.

    He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in critical condition where officials said he was undergoing surgery.
