1-year-old girl shot riding in car in California, police say

Police have yet to publicly identify any suspects in the incident Monday and have not said whether they believe the shooting was random or targeted.

Police in California are investigating after a 1-year-old girl appeared to have been shot riding in a car in Oakland on Monday.

Officers initially responded to the incident after shot-locating technology known as ShotSpotter was activated just after 6 p.m. (9 p.m. ET), Oakland police said.

They arrived to find the 1-year-old suffering from an apparent gunshot wound, police said.

She was taken to a children's hospital and was listed as stable early Tuesday, authorities said.

The baby had been riding in a red sedan when she was shot, NBC Bay Area reported.

Security cameras at a nearby store, Saba Gift Market, captured video of a red sedan rolling up to a fire station, with its passengers appearing to get out and bang on the fire station's doors for help, the TV station reported.

“I just hear people screaming and stuff, and I hear banging, so I just ran out, and I just seen the camera right here,” witness Abdul Farahn told NBC Bay Area.

“I run out and yeah, I see the baby,” Farahn said. “She was on the floor, and they were putting, like, I think CPR, maybe, for her so she could breathe.”

Firefighters provided aid before an ambulance arrived and took the girl to UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital with gunshot wounds, the Oakland Fire Department told NBC Bay Area.

An image shared by NBC Bay Area shows the red sedan riddled with bullets.

Police have yet to publicly identify any suspects and have not said whether they believe it was a random or a targeted shooting.

Authorities have asked anyone with information to contact the Oakland police Felony Assault Unit.
