A gunshot that broke out near Temple University on Thursday night left an 8-year-old girl with a non-fatal grazing wound to the head, according to the authorities.
Just before nine o’clock in the evening, police officers from the Temple Police Department and the Philadelphia Police Department went to the 1500 block of North 13th Street in response to allegations of a shooting.
According to Deputy Commissioner John Stanford, an automobile ambushed by multiple shooters fired approximately 50 rounds at another car that was passing by.
According to Stanford, the girl was struck in the head by stray gunfire as she stood close to a house’s front door.
A person inside the targeted vehicle was reportedly hit in the leg and sent to Temple University Hospital, according to police.
