7-year old South Carolina girl injured during shooting at home

The house of a 7-year old girl, as well as the neighbor's home, in Colleton County, South Carolina, was shot at multiple times from outside the homes.  The girl was wounded by flying glass debris.  Her mother was shot in the foot. An adult male in the home was shot multiple times in the leg.

From an article:

Stanfield said a 48-year-old male victim was shot in the leg multiple times.  He was taken to Medical University of South Carolina for treatment. 
The woman was treated for a gunshot wound to her foot at Colleton Medical Center, while her 7-year-old daughter was treated for a cut on her head, apparently caused by shattered glass from a television which sustained damage, according to Stanfield. 
The victims said they were watching television when the shots hit the house, and Stanfield said the house next door was also struck by several rounds, although no one was injured.
