THE BRONX — Multiple people were shot, including a 4-year-old girl, in the Bronx Wednesday, police said.

The shooting happened near East 167 Street and Clay Avenue, police confirmed at about 1:30 p.m.

Multiple cars pulled up to that location and an argument ensued then a fist fight broke out, NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said.

During the fight, a man pulled out a gun and started shooting, followed by a second man who pulled out a gun and fired several rounds, Boyce said.

Some 17 shots were fired in the exchange, all of them coming "from one side of the argument," Boyce said.

Multiple people, including a 4-year-old girl who suffered a graze wound, were injured in the shooting, Boyce said. Their conditions were not released, but Boyce said none of the injuries appear to be life-threatening.

At least two vehicles connected to the shooting fled the scene, though investigators did not release the cars' descriptions.

It's unknown what sparked the violence. Boyce said investigators are reviewing "very good video" to determine who they are looking for.
