4-year-old Mahsaan Kelley-Wilson of Missouri, died after being hit by a bullet while riding in the back seat of a car with his parents.

Kelley-Wilson was rushed to the Truman Medical Center in Kansas City, after his parents saw that he was hit by a bullet.

The shooting occurred at about 1:50 a.m., when the child's parents drove into gunfire on Eighth Street and The Paseo to Admiral Boulevard.

The parents said that they drove between two cars without realizing that people in the two vehicles were shooting at each other.

The family was caught in the crossfire of the shootout and their car was hit. Kelley-Wilson’s parents were not injured, but he could not be saved.
