Buffalo Police are investigating a late-night shooting that seriously injured a four-year old girl.
Police say the girl was grazed by gunfire about 10:20 p.m. Thursday while in a vehicle in the 300 block of Lasalle Avenue near Comstock. Neighbors tell Eyewitness News that the girl was struck in the head by a bullet while parked in a driveway with her mother.
The child, who the family has identified as Lelaina Mackelmore, was driven in a civilian vehicle to Sisters Hospital with what police are calling 'serious injuries.'
Investigators say the girl was not the intended target.
A gofundme page for the girl is asking for donations to help with medical costs.
