COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) — A mother and her 2-year-old child have been wounded in a shooting at an apartment complex on the east side of Council Bluffs.

Authorities say the woman was putting her child into a car just before 6 a.m. Tuesday when they were attacked. The woman was shot several times, and her child was shot in an arm.

It's unclear whether the woman knew the shooter. No arrest has been reported.

The woman, whose name hasn't been released, was taken to an Omaha, Neb., hospital for treatment.
