The four-year-old, who is a month shy of her fifth birthday, according to a police report, was originally brought to Community East Hospital around 8 p.m. Monday.

She was then transported to Riley, where she underwent surgery and was last reported in stable, but good condition.

Police she was shot in her upper leg. The shooting apparently happened in the 4100 block of Edgemere Court.
