Authorities: 4-year-old girl injured by stray bullet in Columbia drive-by shooting


COLUMBIA, South Carolina — Authorities say a 4-year-old girl has been injured in a drive-by shooting in Columbia.

Richland County deputies tell local media outlets that the girl was sitting in a car in the driveway of a southeast Columbia home when she was hit.

Sgt. Kevin Lawrence says the girl was shot in the upper body, and her injuries were not life-threatening. The girl's parents took her to a hospital to be treated.

Deputies say that witnesses reported hearing multiple shots coming from a blue SUV and a gold sedan. No arrests have been made, and authorities are still investigating.
