ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta police are searching for a gunman who shot a 16-year-old girl in the back while trying to steal her hoverboard.

Police told local news media Saturday that the victim was shot in the lower back and came out of her side. Police say two males followed the victim and a male friend home from a gas station convenience store and tried to take the hoverboard.

Police say one of the suspects tried to force his way into the apartment. The girl and friend tried to shut the front door before the friend threw the hoverboard out the door.

Police say the suspect fired one shot through the door, hitting the girl.

The girl was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital where she’s in stable condition.
