MILFORD, Del. (AP) — Police in Delaware say a 4-year-old girl is hospitalized after she was struck in the back of the head by a stray bullet as she stood next to a Christmas tree inside her apartment.

Milford police told news outlets the girl was taken to Nemours/A.I. duPont Hospital for Children after Sunday night's shooting.

Officers dispatched to the apartment complex learned there had been a fight between multiple people in the courtyard and that someone in that fight then fired a handgun.

Detective Timothy Maloney said one of the bullets hit the child.

The girlfriend of the child's father told the Delaware News Journal the girl had been standing near a small Christmas tree, under which was a present she was waiting to open.
