A 12-year-old girl is recovering after being shot in the arm when two suspects in New York City approached a group of kids who were fighting and at least one fired on them, police said.

The New York Police Department said 10 kids were involved in a sidewalk brawl on 160th Street in Queens just before 8 p.m. on Wednesday when two people approached and started shooting, local FOX 5 reported.

The preteen who was shot in her left arm was taken to a children’s hospital in stable condition. Two other people were reportedly injured as well, police told Fox News Digital – an 18-year-old female who suffered a cut to her head, and a 25-year-old woman with a stab wound to the chest. Both went to hospitals for treatment.
