BAK­ERS­FIELD — Fam­ily and friends gath­ered for a can­dle­light vigil out­side a Cal­i­for­nia apart­ment com­plex where a 3-year-old boy was shot and killed and his brother and preg­nant mother were wounded.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors have not re­leased in­for­ma­tion on a sus­pect or pos­si­ble mo­tive in the shoot­ing last Fri­day in Bak­ers­field.

Johniece Wil­liams, who sur­vived the shoot­ing along with her un­born child, tells KBAK-TV that her sons were danc­ing to Youtube videos when some­body kicked the door in and opened fire. Three-year-old Ma­jor Sut­ton was killed. His 5-yearold brother was hit but is ex­pected to be OK af­ter surgery.

Bak­ers­field po­lice and Kern County sher­iff’s de­tec­tives are in­ves­ti­gat­ing.
