WEST MEMPHIS, AR (KAIT/WREG) - Authorities want to find the person responsible for shooting inside a house in West Memphis in which a man was hurt and a child and a pregnant woman were nearly shot.

According to a report from Memphis television station WREG, West Memphis police went to a home near South Third Street earlier this week. The man was shot in the leg, while the child - a 6-year-old girl - was also at home.

Police say the pregnant woman, who is 25 years old, drove the man to the hospital. Officers have spent this week investigating the shooting incident, with detectives finding over a dozen bullet casings near the house with eight hitting the house, WREG said.

Police believe the incident may be a retaliatory shooting, tied to other cases, WREG noted.
