PONTIAC, Mich. – Three girls were shot in Pontiac in a drive-by shooting Saturday night, according to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office.

The incident took place just before 11:30 p.m. Saturday at a residence in the the 1100 block of Dudley Avenue, a few blocks north of M-59.

Police said the grandparents were watching their grandchildren as well as their two children when they heard gun shots and glass breaking. Three children were struck by bullets; a 10-month-old, 7-year-old and 11-year-old.

Authorities said deputies transported two of the children to a local hospital and a third was transported by ambulance. They are expected to survive.

The grandparents and the father of the 10-month-old said they have no idea who shot at the home or why.

A photograph of the suspect’s vehicle -- believed to possibly be a Chrysler 300 -- can be seen above. Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-Speak-Up.
