(HOUSTON) — A 16-year old girl is recovering from a gunshot wound to the leg after being shot by an unknown gunman Tuesday night.

An 18-year old man and the girl told officers they were sitting in a car at an apartment complex on FM 1960 when they noticed a suspicious man walking around in the parking lot.

The driver told Harris County Sheriff’s Office deputies that when the man approached them he tried to drive away. That’s when deputies said the man fired seven shots, one of which went through the car door.
