LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Lansing police say they’ve arrested an adult they say accidentally shot and critically wounded a 2-year-old girl.

The Lansing State Journal (https://on.lsj.com/1yIP5iD ) reports that police say the shooting happened about 8:45 p.m. Friday. Police say the shooter fled before police arrived, but Sgt. Todd Johnson said Sunday that an adult has been arrested and faces arraignment Monday on unspecified charges.

Police say the girl was conscious when officers arrived and say she was in critical but stable condition at a hospital.

Johnson says the girl underwent successful surgery and is doing “much better.” He says she could face another operation.
