DETROIT – A 2-year-old girl was hospitalized after being shot in the shoulder by a group of teenagers who got into a gunfight Friday night.
The girl was taken to Children’s Hospital of Michigan, where she is listed in critical condition.
The shooting happened at a home on Littlefield Street, near the intersection of Fenkell Avenue and Schaefer Highway. The victim’s mother said she believes the shooting was sparked by a fight between her teenage son and her daughter’s boyfriend.
