Des Moines police were called to an eastside residential neighborhood just before 11 last night on reports of gunfire, and then got a 911 call that a child had been shot.
Officers found a two-year-old who’d been sitting inside the house was suffering from a bullet wound.
The child was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.
Evidence indicates more than a dozen shots were fired at the house from outside.
Early this morning, a wrecked vehicle was found on Interstate 80 in Dallas County.
Evidence led investigators back to Des Moines where five people were taken into custody and two guns were recovered.
