3-year old girl shot in home from gun battle outside

A 3-year old girl was lying on her sofa in Shreveport, Louisiana, when a gun battle erupted outside.  At least 15 shots were fired, and at least one of those entered the home, hitting the girl.  She is expected to survive.

This is the third shooting in that neighborhood in just a week.

From an article and news video:

Police say the 3 year old girl was lying on her sofa when she was struck by a stray bullet from an apparent gun battle outside her house.

This is the third shooting in Queensborough in the last week.

Sgt. Bill Goodin says detectives also found a handgun behind the little's girls house.
They say it's possible there was an exchange of gunfire.

Police say the child was taken to an area hospital with 'serious injuries.'
