Sleeping NJ girl hit by stray bullet

Posted: Updated:

WINSLOW TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a sleeping New Jersey teenager was struck by a bullet when gunfire broke out outside her home.

The 13-year-old girl from the Sicklerville section of Winslow Township was struck in the buttocks early Monday. Her injuries were not considered life-threatening. She was taken to Cooper University Hospital in Camden.

Authorities tell Philadelphia's WPVI-TV that three other girls were also sleeping in the room when several shots were fired.

A woman in a home across the street was hit by flying glass after a bullet shattered her window.

No arrests have been made.
