Girl hit by a bullet in drive-by shooting


A 13-year-old girl was hit by a bullet when it shot through her bedroom during a drive-by shooting in Des Moines.

According to police, a passenger in the car fired three shots at the girl's house around 12:45 Saturday morning.

The girl was in her bedroom at the time, and the bullet hit her in the back, but did not penetrate her skin.

She suffered bruises.

The girl's 18-year-old brother told police he believes the shooting was part of an ongoing feud that started earlier this year when he intervened in a fight.

He tells police he has been receiving threats.
