NEW YORK(CBSNewYork) — Six people have been taken to area hospitals following a drive-by shooting in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn.

Residents told 1010 WINS reporter Eileen Lehpamer that they were outraged over the shooting which occurred near the intersection of Rockaway and Riverdale Avenues just after 7p.m.

“People don’t even value, just breathing,” said a woman identified as Teresa.

The shooting occurred while it was still light out with numerous children out playing in the streets. Among those children was two-year-old Aryanna Prynce.

Prynce was hit in the leg by a stray bullet and was taken to Brookdale Hospital, her mother Jahlessa Westry told CBS 2’s Dave Carlin that she was just relieved that her daughter was going to be alright.

“She’s alright, it went in and went out. Clean bandage and she goes home,” she said.

The remaining victims were thirteen, seventeen, twenty-three, twenty-five, and twenty-seven year old males.

No arrests have been made in connection with the shooting which appears to have been gang related. Police are looking for a white Nissan Altima with Florida license plates.
