CINCINNATI — A 12-year-old girl was shot while sitting inside a multi-family apartment building in East Price Hill Tuesday night, Cincinnati police said.

The shooting occurred just after 8 p.m. on the 900 block of Hawthorne Avenue.

The girl was transported to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Tuesday night. Captain Doug Snider said the girl was in surgery and was conscious when delivered to Children’s.

The girl does not live in the apartment and was visiting a friend at the time of the shooting, Snider said.

Police believe the suspect was attempting to shoot another person inside, but no suspect information was available.
