A toddler who was hit in a drive-by shooting Wednesday night has died, and police said they believe they will make an arrest soon in the case.

Several people were taken into custody early Thursday morning and were being questioned, a Huntsville Police Department spokesman said. Lt. Michael Johnson also said an arrest in the case was imminent.

The shooting occurred at 615 Murray Road around 7pm on Wednesday. Investigators say the two-year-old was asleep on the couch when the shooter fired several rounds at the house. One of the bullets went through the front of the house and hit the child.

The child was taken to Huntsville Hospital in critical condition and later died overnight.
