The girl is now in serious but stable condition. The boy has been arrested.
Brown said the shots came from a group of teens who were fighting nearby.
"When the fight started to escalate, shots were fired. Some of the young people started to run. That young lady ran into the parking lot of this church," she said.
Rev. Griffin Davis said his son helped the girl.
"He said she didn't know she was shot, and he found out she was shot. The blood coming out.
He put a rag over her chest to keep the blood from coming out," Davis said.Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
