Chicago police: Bullet fired outside home grazes girl inside

Chicago police say a 7-year-old girl inside a home suffered a graze wound when shots were fired from outside the residence.

Police spokesman Hector Alfaro says the girl was inside the home Monday on the city’s South Side when two shots were fired from the street. Alfaro says the girl was taken to Comer Children’s Hospital and was listed in good condition.

According to Alfaro, the residence isn’t believed to be the intended target.

Police are investigating. Alfaro said late Monday that no one was custody.
