The 3-year-old boy, whose name was being withheld by authorities, is in critical but stable condition at an area hospital after sustaining multiple gunshot wounds, according to the Times Herald-Record.

“A clear motive for the crime is still under investigation; however, a relationship between the suspect and victims has been established,” Newburgh Police Chief Donald B. Campbell said in a news release.

Town of Newburgh officials said Sunday that the shooting was targeted, according to the Journal.

In September 2016, Goode-Ford was charged with possessing a loaded gun, 100 baggies of heroin and over an ounce of crack cocaine after jumping out of a car during a traffic stop and being chased down by Newburgh police, according to the Times Herald-Record.
