Associated Press Release

ATLANTA (AP) -- Authorities say an 8-year-old girl was hospitalized after she was shot by a stray bullet as she slept in her Atlanta home.

The shooting happened around 10:30 p.m. Monday at the Hollywood Shawnee Apartments on the city's northwest side.

Police say the child was asleep in her bed when a round from a high-powered weapon struck her in the leg. She was taken to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston in stable condition.

Police tell CBS Atlanta that they believe the shot came from outside the apartment in the parking lot, where people were arguing at the time.
