CHARLOTTE, N.C.— A toddler was shot in a drive-by shooting in the Hidden Valley neighborhood of northeast Charlotte early Wednesday morning and police say it might be connected to a shooting at a west Charlotte nightclub.

The drive-by happened around 3:15 a.m. Wednesday on Squirrel Hill Road near West Sugar Creek Road and Interstate 85.

 Police say several people inside a car began shooting at a home with three adults and three children inside, including a three-year-old boy who was hit in the kneecap. The boy was taken to Carolinas Medical Center and is expected to be ok.

 Witnesses at the scene on Squirrel Hill Road tell NewsChannel 36 that one of the people in the home had just returned from Face Nightclub off Freedom Drive where there was an earlier shooting. They say he told family members that his car was stolen during an altercation. Police have not confirmed this information.

 No one was hurt in the nightclub shooting.
