5-year old Oakland girl shot by stray bullet

A 5-year old girl was walking with an adult and another child, in Oakland, California, when a man shot at another man.  The bullet missed and hit the girl instead.

The girl is now in stable condition.

From an article:
Several residents of the area described hearing three shots, and one said the apparent target of the attack ran up 50th Avenue to escape. Although the attack's timing and location - midafternoon, in front of a fire station - were particularly brazen, several residents said gunshots are not uncommon in the neighborhood.
