14-year old St. Louis girl shot in calf in drive-by

A 14-year old girl and her 15-year old male friend, both black, were shot at by two white males who had driven by and shouted at them moments before, in the Dutchtown neighborhood of St. Louis, Missouri.  The girl was wounded in the calf.  The boy escaped injury.

From the article:
An unidentified 14-year-old black female and her 15-year-old black male friend were sitting in the 3900 block of Nebraska Avenue at 9 p.m. last night when two white males wearing black shirts began shouting at them. These men then drove off in a dark blue, four-door car.

Twenty minutes later, the vehicle returned and someone in the car opened fire on the teenagers. The young lady was shot in the calf; the young man escaped injury. The girl is in stable condition at an area hospital. Police continue to investigate.
