HOUSTON - A manhunt is underway for the person(s) responsible for a shooting that hit a young girl over in northeast Houston overnight Saturday.
Deputies with Harris Co. Sheriff's Office says they were called out to the 4500 block of Rosemary Ln around 2 a.m. when a 7-year-old girl was suffering from a gunshot wound to her ankle.
Details were not given as to how the incident transpired or what caused it, but officials at the scene confirmed it was the result of a drive-by shooting.
She was taken to a nearby hospital, but deputies say thankfully her injuries were non-life-threatening. However, authorities do not have a suspect description at this time as everyone inside the house was asleep when it happened.
