(Scroll down for video) A father is devastated after three men opened fire at him while he was walking on the street with his baby, according to police in Texas.

The Houston Police Department said that they are looking to arrest the three men on charges including murder after being accused of shooting and killing the 10-month-old boy while he was being held in his father’s arms.

Willie Mason, the grandfather of 10-month-old Messiah Justice Marshall, said that the child father went out for a walk on Wednesday, at around 1:30 p.m., when they were approached by three men.

Suddenly, the three men started shooting at the 22-year-old father and baby. The father ran away with his baby in his arms, but Marshall had already been shot.

The father ran to a Valero gas station in the 5300 block of North Braeswood, to call for help. Sadly, the baby was declared dead at the scene.

The father told police that he did not know the three men who appeared to be in their 20s. Investigators are trying to figure out whether the father has been targeted or this was a random attack.
