Detroit — A 23-year-old mother and her baby were wounded in a shooting Tuesday on Detroit's west side, police said.

The woman's month-old daughter, who she was holding at the time, received a graze wound, investigators said.

The mother's condition was not immediately available Tuesday night.

Another 23-year-old woman at home during the shooting was not injured.
