An 8-year-old girl was among three bystanders shot and injured outside of a Harlem supermarket on Saturday evening, according to the NYPD.

About 7 p.m. on Saturday, police officers responded to a 911 call about a person shot outside of the Fine Fare Supermarket on Lenox Avenue between West 116th and 117th streets, the NYPD said.

Officers found a 33-year-old woman shot in the right arm, who was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, the department said in a release. Two others were shot at that location and were treated at the hospital—a 39-year-old man with injuries on his right arm, and an 8-year-old girl who was shot in the right knee, according to NYC Health + Hospitals. All three were in stable condition, according to the NYPD.

ABC7 reported the 39-year-old man and the child were a father and daughter trick-or-treating as a family, with another child who was uninjured during the incident.

The police department believes that all of the victims were unintended targets. No arrests have been made.

According to the police department, just before the shooting, two men were seen arguing with each other. The argument escalated into a gunfight, each shooting at each other, when stray bullets struck the three victims, the NYPD said.

Police are looking for a man around 20- to 30-years-old seen in surveillance footage wearing a green and black jacket—who they believe was the man who injured the three victims. The second man is around the same age and was seen in a dark baseball cap.

Shootings have been rising in the city this year as the COVID-19 pandemic has spurred mass job loss and disruption to people's daily lives, killing more than 24,000 people in New York City alone. Shooting incidents in 2020 have nearly doubled compared to last year, from 653 to 1,276 , according to police statistics as of October 25th. The number of people injured or killed in shootings also rose—776 at this time last year to 1,569 so far in 2020, stats show.

The latest statistics for the entire month of October have not yet been released by the department. In September, there were 152 shooting incidents, compared to 67 in September 2019—a 127% rise.

Community activists working to halt shootings have called for more resources for cure violence groups, a part of the city's crisis management system that aim to mediate conflicts before gun violence erupts. Police leaders have blamed bail reform and efforts to release incarcerated individuals from jail early to mitigate coronavirus outbreaks in jails, though both those explanations have not been backed up by data.

The uptick in shootings has been seen across the country this year. The New York Times reported last week that some researchers have tied the rise to coronavirus stresses, as more people seek out guns, and community programs mitigating violence have been negatively impacted by the pandemic.
