JERSEY CITY, N.J. (WCBS 880) -- A 2-year-old boy and a 20-year-old woman were shot inside their New Jersey apartment early Sunday, according to police.

The incident was reported just after 2 a.m., at an apartment building on Myrtle Avenue in Jersey City.

Police said officers found the two victims with gunshot wounds and transported the woman and child to a nearby hospital.

The victims were listed in stable condition and the 20-year-old woman was able to tell police that she had heard knocking on her apartment door but was shot as she attempted to open it.

There were no arrests made as of Monday morning and the investigation was ongoing.

The shooting came just two days after a 17-year-old was killed on Brinkeroff Street in the area.

Mayor Steve Fulop told NJ.com in a statement that since the incidents happened indoors, that “usually indicates the incidents were not random as they were targeted.”
