A 13-year-old girl was inside her bedroom Sunday night when she was grazed by a stray bullet.

The shooting happened near 77th and Mill Rd. on the city's northwest side. Police say they believe cars were shooting at each other while driving on 76th St. when the bullet entered the girl's bedroom.

The girl has since been taken to the local hospital and will be released.

This is the third child in weeks to be the unintended target of gunfire.

Police are still looking for suspects in the shooting.
