Police say a 2-year-old girl was shot and critically injured during a wedding reception at an Indianapolis park. Two women also were wounded by gunfire.

A Lawrence Police Department dispatcher who declined to give her name says the girl underwent surgery Sunday morning and is in critical condition at Methodist Hospital. Lawrence is a community within Indianapolis.

Police have not identified the child, who was struck in the head by a bullet Saturday night when a dispute at the wedding reception at Lawrence Community Park led to gunfire.

The two women were shot in their legs.

Lawrence Police Chief Paul Whitehead tells The Indianapolis Star three people have been arrested. Whitehead did not return a message Sunday from The Associated Press.
