Philadelphia police deputy commissioner Frank Vanore told NBC10 that police responded to reports of gunshots in the area of the 3600 block of North 11th Street just before 7 p.m.

"When they arrived, they found evidence of a shooting, but no victim," Vanore said.

Vanore explained that an 11-year-old girl then showed up at a nearby hospital and was placed in stable condition, officials said.

An argument is what investigators believe led to the shooting, according to Vanore. The girl was hit by a stray bullet.

Skyforce10 was over the scene shortly after the incident where police could be seen investigating.

Police said that no arrests have been made yet.
