HOUSTON – An investigation is underway after a 13-year-old girl was shot while she was sleeping in her bed at an apartment complex in north Harris County Wednesday, Harris County sheriff’s deputies said.
HCSO responded to reports of a drive-by in progress at Altanova Apartments, located at 15414 Kuykendahl, around 1 a.m.
Deputies said when they arrived at the scene, they were met by a woman whose daughter was shot inside their residence.
According to investigators, the 13-year-old girl was asleep in her bed when bullets from the drive-by came through the apartment, striking her in the torso.
The victim was transported to a trauma center and is now back at home recovering from her injuries.
Deputies said the mother and her three children-- two daughters and one son-- were all at home inside the apartment when the drive-by shooting occurred.
Investigators are working to determine what led up to the shooting and any suspect information.
