Yesterday afternoon in Brooklyn, a 14-year-old girl walking home from school felt a pain in her left leg. It turned out she was shot.

According to the NYPD, the incident occurred at 3:30 p.m. at the corner of Sutter Avenue and Euclid Avenue. The girl was taken to Kings County Hospital, where she is in stable condition. NBC New York reports, "The girl's parents told reporters... that their daughter was waiting for the light to change to cross the street... The victim is a straight-A student at Benjamin Banneker School, where she is a freshman, according to her parents. The girl loves to draw and wants to design clothes, they said."

Her mother added, "Who would think you get shot coming home from school?"
