An 8-year-old Philadelphia girl was grazed by a bullet to the head Thursday night after shots rang out near Temple University during a drive-by shooting. 

Officers from the Temple Police Department and Philadelphia Police Department responded to the 1500 block of North 13th Street just before 9 p.m. for reports of shots fired, Fox Philadelphia reported.

Shooters ambushed another vehicle that was driving by and fired at least 50 shots. One person inside the car was hit in the leg and taken to a hospital.

The unidentified girl was near a front door of a nearby home when she was grazed by a stray bullet.

No arrests have been made and authorities have not identified any suspects. The grandmother of the girl, who was not identified, told the news outlet that her granddaughter was fine. 

“I’m just thankful now that she’s okay, considering what went down,” she said. “It’s just her mentality now, as far as being outside, because she told her mother that she doesn’t want to play outside when it’s nighttime anymore.”

In a statement, the university addressed the increase in gun violence plaguing the city. 

“We cannot accept these crimes as the norm and will work diligently with the Philadelphia PD Shooting Investigation Unit to track all leads,” the statement said. “This community’s safety is our number one priority. That cannot be understated. We understand and acknowledge the seriousness of this incident and know there is no making sense of the gun violence epidemic plaguing cities and towns across the United States. We must work together to find solutions.”

Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw later tweeted about the shooting Thursday night, calling the shooters “cowards.”
