10-year old girl injured in leg by bullet in Washington, D.C.

A 10-year old girl was riding with her mother when a car pulled up alongside and opened fire, hitting their vehicle two or three times.  One of those bullets grazed the girl's leg.

From the article and news video:
The woman told officials she was in a Dodge Ram pickup truck with the 10-year-old victim when three women and a man pulled up next to her in a white vehicle. She said that's where the shots came from.
News4's Tracee Wilkins counted at least two bullet holes in the Dodge Ram.
The driver of the Dodge Ram police she then drove three miles across town to the 6th District Police Station, although officials say the 5th District Police Station was closer.
Authorities said the victim and the driver of Dodge Ram share the same last name, but are not saying how they are related.
