SELMA, AL (WSFA) - A woman has been charged and two men are wanted after a 3-year-old boy was injured in a shooting Thursday night in Selma.

Selma Police Chief Spencer Collier said the child and his mother were outside their home at the Magnolia Gardens Apartments when he was shot in a drive-by shooting. His injuries were described as non-life-threatening.

Collier said officers were called to the apartments around 7 p.m. When police arrived, they were told the child had been taken to the hospital in Selma. The child was then airlifted to Children's of Alabama hospital in Birmingham.

Investigators determined a rifle and pistol were used in the shooting.

The initial investigation indicates that before the shooting there was an altercation possibly between the child's mother and a woman named Cassandra Jones.

Police secured three arrest warrants for suspects in the shooting.  While serving a search warrant at a residence on Primrose Drive Friday morning, Collier said Jones approached police, and she was taken into custody.

Jones was booked in the Dallas County Jail with no bond. She was charged with attempted murder and shooting into an unoccupied dwelling, Collier said.

Selma police are searching for Kentravius Washington and Adrian Richardson. Both are wanted for attempted murder.

Police say the men are assumed to be dangerous and anyone who sees them should call authorities immediately.

This story has been corrected to say only one woman has been charged. The district attorney incorrectly stated two women were arrested.
