NEW YORK, NY – A 12-year-old girl is currently recuperating from a gunshot wound she sustained during a juvenile brawl in Queens, New York. Authorities report that the incident occurred when two unidentified individuals approached a group of children engaged in a dispute and began firing at them.

The New York Police Department (NYPD) revealed that approximately ten children were involved in the altercation, which took place on the sidewalk of 160th Street just before 8 p.m. on Wednesday. Two individuals approached the group and initiated gunfire.
