The girl and a friend were crossing at a three-way intersection near Manor Ave., E. 173rd St. and E. 174th St. when one of the bullets hit her in the left hip at about 8:30 p.m., sources said.
“It appears she was the unintended target,” one police source said. “It appears she was an innocent bystander.”
