Police are looking for a suspect who shot an 11-year-old girl in the face in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, according to a news release.
"The child victim is expected to recover from her injuries although she sustained significant facial trauma and is still undergoing treatment," the office said. "We do not believe this to be a random act, although the victim was likely not the intended target."
Officials are calling on residents to be extra vigilant and report any suspicious persons.
However, the department stressed: "We do not believe there is any increased danger to the public at large."
The suspect is described as a possible male wearing a face covering.
Other details about the case, possible suspect, or motive are not clear.
