CeFaan Kim has the latest after a 1-year-old was grazed with a bullet in Brooklyn.

It was sheer panic in Brooklyn on Saturday when bullets started flying just before 5:30 p.m.

Police say one of those bullets grazed a one-year-old in his leg as he was being pushed in a stroller in Brownsville. Another bullet struck at 20-year-old man. Witnesses say the baby's mother and grandfather screamed for help, and someone called 911.

The shooting occurred right underneath the L Train on Sutter Avenue. Witnesses say after the suspect fired those shots, the 20-year-old walked one block to Junius Street. The suspect took off running in the opposite direction.

CeFaan Kim was live at the scene:

Police say they are searching for a black man in his twenties with braids, dressed in all black.

It is still unclear whether the 20-year-old was the intended target. He was rushed to the hospital and is expected to survive.

The one-year-old boy is also expected to be okay.
