Police said a 6-year-old girl was shot while playing outside with other children Monday afternoon in West Philadelphia.
The girl’s parents were sitting in a car nearby and gunfire hit their windshield, according to Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw. They were not injured.
Investigators said a group of young men were being pursued by a dark-colored sedan at the time of the shooting, which occurred just before 3:45 p.m. on the 3800 block of Wyalusing Avenue.
Officers took the girl, who suffered a gunshot wound to her left thigh, to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, where she was in stable condition.
Outlaw said the block has recently been plagued with violence involving rival groups. Authorities did not report any arrests.
