ST. LOUIS (AP) — A four-year-old St. Louis girl is hospitalized in serious condition after being the victim of a drive-by shooting.

The shooting happened Thursday night in the city’s Dutchtown neighborhood. Police say the girl was not the intended target. She was shot in the shoulder.

The girl and her mother were visiting a home and were outside when a car drove by. A shot was fired from the passing car, apparently intended for someone standing in a group nearby.

No arrests have been made but authorities say they are working leads in the case.
