CNN) -- Detroit police searched Tuesday for a man who opened fire in a Detroit home day-care center, critically wounding three people, including a 3-year-old child, officials said.
Police Chief Ella Bully-Cummings told reporters that the man was wearing a black jacket and black pants and was carrying a steel blue, automatic gun.
She said two women, ages 41 and 22, were shot and were in critical condition, in addition to the 3-year-old.
A 7-month-old was also in critical condition, "probably as a result of being dropped," the chief said.
"It appears as though this is not random," Bully-Cummings said of the shooting.
She said witnesses reported that the man came to the door, "words were exchanged" and then the man went inside, shooting.
