A 5-year-old girl was shot in the back as she was trying to flee gunfire in the Ridgewood section of Queens, at Seneca Avenue and Stanhope Street. The child, who was apparently sitting outside when an argument broke out, was taken to the hospital and is in stable condition. A neighbor told the Daily News, "They hit this innocent little girl. These are gangbangers firing at each other like animals." The Post reports reports that it's not clear whether the girl was "hit by a low-caliber bullet or a pullet gun"; plus, witnesses saw men wearing gang colors. A second person, a 27-year-old man, was hit in the leg and was questioned by the police.
