Police in a city just south of Phoenix said a teenage girl was injured when she was hit by a bullet while visiting a shooting range over the weekend.
The girl was shot Saturday at the Elzy Pearson Shooting Range in Casa Grande, about 50 miles from central Phoenix. Police said a gun belonging to a family friend, a 50-year-old man, went off.
The bullet hit the child in the front of her body.
The Casa Grande Dispatch reported the teen was flown to a Valley hospital after the Saturday accident and that family members said she was alert.
She was expected to recover.
Police had sent their report to the Pinal County Attorney’s Office.
