According to her family, a bullet pierced through the young girl’s bedroom window in the 4500 block of Rosemary Lane near Keith Road, striking her in the ankle.
Her mother, Flora Mendoza, said she heard the gunshots and her daughter’s screams around 2 a.m. on Saturday.
Mendoza said her daughter had to go to the hospital to get the bullet lodged in her ankle removed. She was released on Saturday evening with a cast on her left foot and a teddy bear and balloon.
Her mother said shots were also fired outside of their home about a month ago. She believes the same person is targeting them.
Mendoza said she’s not sure who would ever do this, but said she has an older son who has been involved in the wrong crowd.
She wants the shooter to know that no child should be caught in the middle of issues between adults.
Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to contact the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
