Investigators believe that a Friday afternoon shooting that injured three people, including a 3-year-old boy, was a targeted attack, police said.

York City Police spokesman Lt. Dan Lentz said Tuesday the three victims are recovering and expected to survive.

The investigators believe the shooting was related to another incident in the city, Lentz said, but he noted that it was too early to provide a more detailed description of the incident or possible suspects.
