PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A man, woman and 2-year-old child are OK after police say at least 28 shots were fired at their vehicle Thursday night. Police responded to reports of gunshots on the 6600 block of Upland Street just before 6: 30 p.m.

When police arrived, they found an overturned Jeep SUV. The 37-year-old male passenger, 28-year-old female driver and a 2-year-old boy were all OK after the shooting.

Police say the Jeep was at the intersection of 66th and Upland when the driver and passenger say two males began firing shots, striking the jeep.

The driver sped away from the shooters, before crashing into a parked unattended vehicle, which caused the Jeep to flip onto its side.

Both the driver and passenger were able to get out of the overturned SUV and get the boy out.

The child was transported to CHOP to get checked out.

According to police, the Jeep was struck by seven bullets in the front windshield and rear, before crashing. Police say at least 28 shots total were fired from two separate semi-automatic weapons.
