Kent Police are now asking the public for any footage of the incident they may have recorded and are pleading with them not to share it online.
Those living nearby where the attack happened said they saw a shot fired and a child, reportedly a girl, covered with a blanket being taken to the ambulance.
"First I heard a gunshot, there was a dog on the floor. A few officers carried out a child from the back area of the flats,” Jaspreet Uppal told ITV News.
"There is a little park there. I could not see the child, they were covered. I think they were quite small."
