COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Authorities in central Ohio say a 12-year-old girl was critically injured when she was shot in the chest in her home.

Columbus police say it happened Monday evening at a residence east of downtown.

Police say they still don’t know who shot the girl. Family members told WBNS-TV that the child was in critical condition but was expected to survive.

Family members also say the shot may have come from outside the home.

Police haven’t released the child’s name.
