8-Year-Old Girl Grazed By Bullet In Jamaica Plain

Police say an 8-year-old girl was grazed by a bullet during a series of gunshots in Boston.

According to Boston police officials, the girl was outside 154 Heath St. — the Bromley-Heath housing complex — in Boston's Jamaica Plain neighborhood just after midnight Sunday with several others. Boston Police Commissioner Bill Evans says a gray Infinity drove by the buildings and fired 15 rounds into the crowd.

The girl was found with two graze wounds to her shoulder and side.

The girl has been taken to a hospital for treatment. She is expected to be released Monday.

Evans says children should not have to worry about getting shot.

No arrests have been made, and police are searching for anyone with information on the shooting.
