(ATLANTA) - Authorities and relatives say a 2-year-old girl was killed and her infant brother wounded after someone fired gunshots through the door of an Atlanta home as they slept alongside their grandmother.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that police said two bullets were fired through the door of a home in south Atlanta, striking 2-year-old Ty-Teyanna Motley and her 1-year-old brother, Isaiah. The children's uncle, Charlie Howard, says they were sleeping with their grandmother on a sofa bed inside the home.

The girl was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. The boy was in stable but critical condition at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. Howard said the boy suffered a gunshot wound near his spine.

Police said they had no immediate leads and had not made any arrests.
