Shots fired into California house hit teen girl in head

WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – Police say a 13-year-old girl is in critical condition after being shot in the head while sitting in her West Sacramento home with her grandmother.

West Sacramento police Officer Ryan Lukins tells the Sacramento Bee that the teenager was shot Saturday evening.

Lukins says there were several shots fired from outside into the home.

He says police are still investigating whether it was a drive-by shooting or something else.

Lukins says detectives didn’t immediately know how many suspects may have been involved or if there was an incident that preceded the shooting.

The girl was taken to the UC Davis Medical Center.
