St. Paul police say an 8-year-old girl is recovering from injuries after being shot late Tuesday night.

According to police, officers were called to a home on the 800 block of Bradley Street around 10:15 p.m. for a report of a shooting.

When officers arrived, they found the girl, who had apparent gunshot injuries.

She was taken to Regions Hospital for injuries that aren’t considered to be life-threatening.

“An 8-year-old in our city should be able to go out and play in a playground setting without fear of being shot,” St. Paul Police Sgt. Mike Ernster said.
