13-Year-Old Shot During Gunfight In North Philadelphia Traffic, Police Say

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- A 13-year-old is in the hospital after she was shot in the back as two cars fired at each other in traffic, Philadelphia police said.

Officers responded to St. Christopher's Hospital for Children after the victim arrived there in a private vehicle. The department said the victim's father brought her there and spoke with officers.

He told authorities he was in his car near Whitaker Avenue and Luzerne Street when he saw a man shooting at another car in front of him.

The two vehicles left, and that's when he realized his daughter had been shot.

She is currently stable, the department said.

The shooting is still under investigation.
