A 12-year-old girl is recovering after she was shot in the stomach during a drive-by shooting in Philadelphia Tuesday afternoon.
The girl was walking out of a grocery store on the 4600 block of Hurley Street when a gunman inside a passing vehicle fired at a group of people in front of the business. The girl, who police say was an innocent bystander, was shot at least once in the stomach.
She was taken to Saint Christopher's Hospital where she is in stable condition.
"We have this young kid who should be at home studying, reading books, instead sitting in a hospital worrying about her health," Philadelphia Police Captain John Walker said.

"We have a lot of people who just don't understand that when you fire that gun, bullets have no name," Captain Walker said. "Again an innocent kid like this just trying to live her life and go to a store like kids do should not have to be at a hospital at this point."
