2-year-old girl in critical condition after shooting in Fort Pierce

FORT PIERCE, FL (WFLX) - A toddler is fighting for her life after she was injured Monday night during a drive-by shooting in Fort Pierce.

A 2-year old girl was hit by bullets on Avenue E, which is north of Orange Avenue and west of U.S. 1.

Police said gunshots were fired around 10 p.m. while the toddler was at a home.

Neighbors said they heard at least 10 gunshots, but the child was not likely the intended target.

The girl was taken to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center where she is in critical condition Tuesday morning.
