BESSEMER, Ala. (AP) - Police say a 6-year-old girl is recovering in a Birmingham hospital after being shot in the back while sleeping in her home.

Bessemer police tell al.com (https://bit.ly/2fMsyKr) the girl’s mother told officers the 6-year-old was asleep when someone fired a shot into the house just after 1:30 a.m. Friday.

Police say the girl was conscious, but was taken to Children’s Hospital by ambulance in serious condition.

Police Chief Nathaniel Rutledge said it concerns him that people are so reckless as to discharge weapons with no regard to where the bullet strikes.
