Ten-year-old Erica Miranda was shot three times in the back, knee and hip while playing basketball outside her home in Compton. A young man had walked up to the crowded street corner and started firing a handgun in what police believe was a gang assault. A 17-year-old relative and a 45-year-old family friend, both men, were also shot three times and survived. At Long Beach Memorial Medical Center: Miller Children’s Hospital, Erica waits for her bandage to be changed.
