8-year old girl wounded in leg in Bronx walking home from school

An 8-year old girl, her mother, and her brother were walking home after school let out, in the Bronx. That's when shots rang out. The girl was hit and wounded in the leg. The shooter then fled on foot.

From one article:

The girl, her brother, and her mother were walking from school at about 2:15 p.m. when a bullet grazed the girl's left leg, the NYPD said.

Police said a man in his 20s fired the shot and then took off on foot.

The girl was not the intended target, police said.

She was treated at Lincoln Hospital and is listed in stable condition.

Another article and video:

Police say a gunman fired a number of times, with one shot grazing the 8-year-old victim in her left leg.

She was taken to a hospital and is expected to recover.

After the shooting, bullet casings littered the ground and were lodged in a nearby house.

The suspect is still at large.

Bullets don't know when to stop.
