At least four people, including two children, were reported shot in a drive-by shooting in the 5300 block of East Rosedale Street.

Officials confirmed that two 3-year-old children were shot and have serious injuries. One was shot in the leg and the other in the arm.

Two adults also were shot in the leg, including a 19-year-old and a 20-year-old. One adult sustained a serious injury and the other a minor one.

All four were taken to area hospitals.

More than a dozen police units were sent to the address at 5:39 p.m. Police said the shooting happened at Smokey’s Paradise Food Mart.

An employee who did not give his name said Monday the four victims never entered the store Sunday.

“I heard six to seven shots, and people just started running into the store for cover,” he said.

The employee said the shooting occurred in the parking lot.

No one is in custody. Police are looking for a black man wearing a gray shirt in a gray Nissan Altima who left westbound from the scene.
