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.
