An 18-month-old toddler escaped injury after his father and another man both died after exchanging gunfire on a Chicago street.

It happened Monday morning on the city’s South Side, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

“They came in three waves,” Arturo Rodriguez said of the gunshots. He told the paper he heard them from his bedroom.

“All I heard was ‘boom, boom, boom,’ and then a woman screaming and a kid crying,” he said.

Responding officers found Finley in a car with wounds to both his thighs, according to the paper.
