COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) -

Two people have been charged after a shooting left a small child injured at the City Heights apartment complex overnight, Covington police said.

Officers preparing to get off work heard "dozens of shots" fired just before midnight Friday on Welsh Drive, said Assistant Police Chief Rob Nader.

Upon arrival, officers said they located two adults and one small child suffering from gunshot wounds.

The four-year-old was transported to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. He's listed in stable condition.

Two other victims, Anton Canady and Brandon Rice, went to University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

Canady, 31, was treated and released from the hospital, police said. 

Rice, 33, is listed in serious condition.

Canady and Elmer Rice were charged in the shooting. 

Elmer, 57, faces charges of wanton endangerment, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon and tampering with evidence. 

Canady faces wanton endangerment and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon. 

No word as to what led up to the shooting.

Police locked the entire complex down for about two hours while they canvassed the scene and gathered evidence.

They have since lifted that order and cleared the scene.
