DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- A 12-year-old Iowa girl is recovering from a gunshot wound after being struck by a bullet while she was in her living room.

The Des Moines Register reports the drive-by shooting happened in Des Moines Sunday afternoon around 4:15 p.m.

Des Moines Police Sgt. Joe Morgan says a white, four-door sedan pulled up in front of the house and someone fired several shots at the home.

Police are searching for the car that was used in the shooting. Investigators hope a neighbor's security camera or someone in the area may have seen the car.
