An 11-year-old girl was shot and killed by a stray bullet in the Bronx, dice la polizia

An 11-year-old girl died Monday night after being struck by a stray bullet on the streets of the Bronx in New York City, the New York Police Department announced.

The girl was shot in the abdomen when a man on a scooter attempted to shoot another person running down the street, NYPD Assistant Chief Philip Rivera said at a news conference. A bullet struck the young girl instead of the intended target, Egli ha detto.
The girl was taken to the hospital in critical condition but later died from her injuries, ha detto la polizia.
      At the time of the shooting around 4:50 p.m. Lunedi, two men on an electric scooter were chasing another man down Fox Street, Rivera ha detto. The man riding on the back of the scooter fired at the man fleeing on foot and instead fatally struck the young girl, Egli ha detto.
        Police are looking for the shooter, as well as the man driving the scooter and the intended target of the bullet, Rivera ha detto. NYPD released surveillance footage of the suspects and are asking the public for any information related to the crime.
