15-Year-Old Girl Recovering After Overnight Drive-By Shooting In San Jose

SAN JOSE (CBS SF) – A 15-year-old girl was injured early Tuesday in a drive-by shooting in San Jose.

Police responded at 4:46 a.m. to the 2100 block of Lausett Avenue after receiving a call about a shooting.

The victim, who was treated for minor injuries to her arm at the scene, reported a suspect fired a gun from a vehicle and then fled the area.

Police Sgt. Heather Randol said no arrest has been made and officers did not initially have a suspect or suspect vehicle information.

According to Randol, drive-by-shootings are rare in San Jose.

“It is a very dangerous thing to occur in the city and we would like to know who’s responsible for these crimes so that we can prevent them from happening,” she said.

It is unclear if the injured teen was a target or a bystander.
