KTLA-TV reported that about 10 to 15 people were gathered outside the home when a car pulled up and the shooter jumped out, opening fire at the crowd.

The girl, who was inside, was struck by a bullet that shattered a window, the television station reported.

Police are looking for a silver, older-model car, Morris said — possibly a Honda or a Toyota Camry.
