ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A 4-year-old Anchorage girl was struck and injured by bullet fragments when someone in an upstairs apartment fired a gun.

Police early Thursday took a call from a hospital reporting the girl had suffered puncture wounds. They were not life-threatening.

The girl’s parents told police she and three other children had been left Wednesday night with a 17-year-old.

When the parents returned, they checked on the girl and found blood in the bed and wounds to her legs. The parents drove the girl to the hospital.

Police investigated the family’s first-floor home at an apartment complex on San Roberto Avenue east of Russian Jack Springs Park.

Investigators determined a shot was fired from third-floor apartment directly above the family’s apartment.

Police continue to investigate and have made no arrests.
