The 200 block of East Dunlap street in Lancaster was quiet Tuesday morning, the day after 2-year-old Jacarion Antonio Gladden was shot in the chest and killed.

The Lancaster County coroner identified the toddler Tuesday.

The boy's autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday, and police are still trying to figure out what led up to the shooting. 

A neighbor and family member of the toddler told WBTV she saw the boy, his mother, and his 4-year-old sister rushing to the hospital after the shooting.

She did not hear any gunshots, but saw them leaving and someone yelling "Keep your eyes open."

She says she called the little boy "Little SK." She says he was a happy baby, that was always playing outside and riding his bike.

She added that his mother and her boyfriend were often seen fighting, but she did not know if that had anything to do with the boy being shot. 

Police have not released any more information about the shooting.

A prayer service is scheduled at noon at a church the family has been a part of before.
