DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) — A girl was injured when several shots were fired at a Durham gas station on Friday evening.
The child was shot just before 5 p.m. near the intersection of North Duke Street and Horton Road, police said.
“The child was inside a car in a parking lot when she was injured,” police wrote.
The 5-year-old girl was hit on the lower part of her body, police said. An adult was pumping gas when “multiple” shots were fired, with one hitting the girl.
The adult drove the girl to the hospital after the shooting.
The child was taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening, according to police.
Another bullet from the shooting hit a window near the check-out counter of the gas station. The window was boarded up and no one else was injured.
Police are investigating the incident, but said they do not believe the girl or the adult were targeted in the shooting.
