SCRANTON, SC (WBTW) – A toddler was shot Sunday night in Scranton, according to officials.

The child is in stable condition as of Monday morning after undergoing surgery, deputies say.

According to Chief Deputy Glen Kirby, the call came in just after 6 p.m. on Sunday from the 1900 block of Boyd Street in Scranton. The baby was transported to an area hospital for surgery.

The investigation is ongoing. One neighbor told News13 he saw the child after it happened. He didn’t want his identity released.

“I opened the door to see what was going on, and they were coming out the house hollering and screaming saying that the baby is bleeding bad,” the man said.

Another neighbor said she didn’t even hear about the incident until Monday morning.

“Someone told me at the gas station, and I saw it on Facebook that a child had been shot on Boyd Road, but I thought it was the other Boyd. I didn’t think it was here because I didn’t even hear the shooting because it’s so quiet at night,” said Janice Talbert.
