Girl, mother wounded in Southern California shooting
PORT HUENEME, Calif. (AP) — Southern California authorities are investigating a late-night shooting that wounded a 7-year-old girl and her mother.
The shooting occurred after 10 p.m. Tuesday in a residential area of Port Hueneme (wy-nee-mee) in Ventura County.
Police Chief Andrew Salinas says the girl was hospitalized in critical condition and the woman was listed in stable condition.
Despite numerous shots fired, no one called police to report gunfire, apparently because the sounds were confused with fireworks.
