One person was killed and at least eight others injured, including two kids, in a mass shooting inside a Savannah, Georgia, apartment complex Friday night.

The children, a 2-year-old who was struck near the ankle and a 13-year-old, both have non-life-threatening injuries, according to local station WTOC-11.

But two of the adults were in critical condition, according to Savannah ABC affiliate WJCL

It was one of three mass shootings in the country overnight. In Austin, Texas, 13 people were injured when a man shot into a downtown crowd. In Chicago, 10 were shot and one killed when two men shot up a street on the South Side.

Savannah police said officers responded around 9 p.m. to the Robert Hitch Village/Fred Wessels Homes, a 250-unit affordable housing complex just three blocks from police headquarters. They found a grisly scene with multiple victims.

There is currently no information on motive or suspects, and police are still gathering information.

Just before 3 a.m., Savannah Mayor Van Johnson tweeted an appeal for help finding the shooter. “Last evening, #Savannah, like so many other cities in the nation has been victimized by a mass shooting,” he said. “Friday night, 9 people were shot including a 13-year-old & a 2-year-with non-life threatening injuries. One person has died. We need your help with info.”
