OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - A 12-year-old girl is expected to survive after she was shot while sitting in a car with her father in east Oakland.
Police say the girl, who was struck in the leg, does not appear to have been a target of the Wednesday evening shooting. Several houses in the area were also hit although no one else was wounded.
Police have not made any arrests or disclosed a possible motive.
The shooting comes weeks after an 11-year-old was shot in Oakland. Luis Hernandez was sleeping at his family's home when he was struck. The Oakland Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/WTu4ea) that he is recovering.
