A Walk In The Park: Stray Bullet Hits 12-Year-Old Girl In St. Louis

It wasn’t just another walk in the park for one twelve-year-old girl on Sunday evening. It used to be that you could take your children to play in the park without giving it a second thought. Times have changed.

Witnesses reported that a crowd of people had gathered around two men in Loretta Hall Park in St. Louis. The two men began arguing, drew their guns, and fired as the crowd dispersed. A little girl was playing nearby when a stray bullet hit her in the hand.

She was taken to the hospital for her wound, while police began searching for the two men responsible. An arrest was made Tuesday morning in St. Louis County.
