(CNN)An 8-year-old boy is in a medically induced coma following a shooting in Cincinnati on Monday, according to police.

The boy's mother, Marcella Thompson, told CNN affiliate WLWT, "He's fighting so hard. He's the strongest child I've ever seen. They told me my baby wasn't going to make it through that day. My baby made it another day and another day."

The child is one of four victims in a shooting on the 3200 block of McHenry Avenue Monday evening, CNN has previously reported.

The Cincinnati Police Department said a 6-year-old and an 18-year-old have been released from the hospital. A 7-year-old was uninjured, with a bullet only hitting his shoe.

CPD has not released the identities of the victims, a statement from CPD Chief Eliot Isaac said.
