Police gathered evidence at the crime scene after a nine-year-old girl was shot three times Monday afternoon in Trenton. Officers responded to the corner of Bellevue Avenue and Marion Street for a report of shots fired at 2:49 p.m., according to nj.com. Police said the child was not the intended target, according to CBS3.
Officials told NBC10 that one bullet struck the girl's shoulder, another grazed her leg and another grazed her ribs. Fox29 said she was in stable condition and was being transported to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. 6ABC said she was talking and alert.
