A 7-year-old girl was shot Friday evening while sitting on the couch of her DeKalb County home, police said.
The child, who has not been identified, was struck by a bullet that was fired outside the home along Satellite Boulevard just after 11 p.m., DeKalb police Sgt. J.D. Spencer said.
The girl was taken to a nearby hospital in serious condition.
Investigators marked at least three bullet holes that were fired into the home’s front door and another four that were shot through two windows.
Nobody is in custody and it’s unclear why the home was targeted.
The police investigation is ongoing.
