In that span of time, three teenagers and a 9-year-old were confirmed to have been rushed to either Le Bonheur Children's Hospital or Regional One Hospital in the wake of those shootings.
Wednesday afternoon, a 13-year-old was taken to Le Bonheur Children's Hospital in critical condition after being shot in the 1400 block of East Brooks Road.
MPD said 60-year-old Keith Bethany was arrested and charged with aggravated assault and theft of property under $1,000 in connection with the shooting.
"A firearm recovered from that scene was stolen," MPD Public Information Officer Theresa Carlson said in an email.
The police department did not say if anyone else is being looked at as a suspect in that shooting.
