Police outside of the home day care where a toddler shot two others in MI.
Both of the children shot at the day care were taken to the hospital in critical condition, but have been upgraded to serious but stable condition, Dearborn police said.
MI state law does not prohibit guns at child care facilities, television station WXYZ reported, but requires them to be unloaded and stored in a locked location away from children.
The children, aged between two and four, were in a critical condition after being hit by bullets at the Dearborn, Detroit home.
"This is just tragic that it happened in this way", Escobedo said. "She treats every child like they are her own", Esobedo said.
At the time of the shooting there were seven children and at least one adult in the property.
'However it shakes out, it's a tragedy for our entire community, and this isn't something that anybody plans to occur.
The husband, 50, and wife, 33, used the air gun on the five kids aged from seven to 15, Preston crown court heard. The facility is run by Samantha Eubanks, 31, and according to the neighbors, she takes care of about 10 or more babies on a daily basis, New York Daily News reported.
"She would always say, "don't you ever bring a gun in this house, it's not gonna happen", Ms Escobedo added.
"My sister is totally against guns", Escobedo said to the Detroit Free Press.
Haddad said he was proud of the way the city's first responders handled the situation.
