MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – Police say a 3-year-old girl was shot multiple times while riding in a car in Memphis.
Police said in a statement that a woman reported being flagged down Sunday night by a man while driving through an apartment complex. She told officers that the man began to flirt with her, and when she rejected his advances, he pulled out a handgun and began firing into her vehicle.
A child in the car was hit, and police spokesman Louis Brownlee said that the girl remained in extremely critical condition Monday morning.
Police say there were multiple bullet holes in the car windows on the passenger’s side.
The investigation is continuing. No arrests have been made.
