12-Year Old Girl Shot In Oakland

OAKLAND (CBS/AP) — A 12-year-old girl was expected to survive after she was shot while sitting in a car with her father in east Oakland.

Police say the girl, who was struck in the leg, does not appear to have been a target of the Wednesday evening shooting. Several houses in the area were also hit although no one else was wounded.

Police have not made any arrests or disclosed a possible motive.

The shooting comes weeks after an 11-year-old was shot in

Oakland. Luis Hernandez was sleeping at his family’s home when he was struck. He is recovering.
