OXNARD (AP) — A 10-year-old girlon a playground was shot by a stray bullet in a drive-by shooting outside an elementary school, authorities said Thursday.

Oxnard police said on Twitter the girl was struck Thursday morning during a car-to-car shooting outside McAuliffe Elementary School. The shooting is believed to be an isolated incident.

The girl suffered non-life threatening injuries, and no one else was injured, police said.

“She is in good spirits,” Oxnard Police Chief Scott Whitney said.

The Ventura County Star reported that police believe a semiautomatic handgun was used in the shooting, which took place at the back of the school. Authorities recovered shell casings in the street.
