An 11-year-old girl was shot in a foot while walking home from school Monday afternoon in the city's Hunting Park section, police said.
Shortly after 3:20 p.m., the girl was in the 700 block of West Luzerne Street when she was shot by an unidentified male. Police took her to St. Christopher's Hospital for Children, where she was listed in stable condition.
The girl told police she heard about five shots.
The assailant was described as a white man in his late 20s wearing a black skull cap, black pants and a black long-sleeve shirt with a brown dragon print on the front, police said. He was believed to have been shooting at an unknown man who ran away from the scene on Luzerne Street, with the shooter chasing him. - Robert Moran
