SALINAS, CA -- A 10-year-old girl was shot Friday night when a stray bullet hit her in the leg while she was walking in Salinas with her mother.
At around 7:30 p.m., the young victim and her mom were walking along Roosevelt Street when an unknown shooter fired at two teenage boys near the intersection of Roosevelt and Wood Streets, according to the Salinas Police Department.
A bullet struck the girl in the leg, and she was carried by her mother to a relative's home on Roosevelt Street. She was later taken to a hospital. Her wound was not expected to be life threatening.
