Four young people – including a toddler less than one year old – were shot at a church’s Easter carnival in Alabama on Saturday night.

The four, of whom three were teenagers, were not critically injured after being shot at the Cathedral of the Cross A.O.H. Church of God on the border of Birmingham and Center Point, reported.

They were all taken to hospital, as was a pregnant woman knocked to the ground in the chaos that followed the gunfire.

Authorities said a fight broke out before the gunfire, which occurred around 9.30pm.

The baby was being treated at the Children’s Hospital of Alabama and the teenagers were at UAB Hospital’s trauma center.
Around 900 people were at the carnival, authorities said.

Nearly 100 total police and firefighters were called to the scene and five people were taken into custody for questioning, WBRC reported.
