A 5-year-old girl was shot while playing on a sidewalk in Brooklyn, New York Monday night.

The girl was grazed in the head by a bullet on Montauk Avenue at around 6.05 p.m., said law enforcement sources, reported Fox News. Following the shoot, she was taken to Brookdale Hospital. Authorities said that she suffered non-life threatening injuries.

The investigation is still on. The police were hunting for the shooter Monday night.

A witness, Ebony Anderson, said she saw a man firing rounds while standing near a silver car with its trunk open. "A guy just turned around and started shooting," said Anderson.

"It just happened so fast. I was on the phone with my parents and saw my daughter come out of the house and had her run back into the house."

In a separate incident, a 17-year-old boy was arrested and charged with involuntary manslaughter in the shooting death of a Georgia high school senior, reported NBC News. Authorities made the announcement earlier this month. The arrest took place after Candace Chrzan, 17, was fatally shot in the backyard of a house in Mount Zion.

A Carroll County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Ashley Hulsey said that four people were at the home shooting bottles. Chrzan had a .22-caliber pistol when it jammed and she gave the weapon to the 17-year-old boy. Hulsey said the teenager was trying to unjam it when the gun fired. Chrzan was struck in the head after which she died at the scene, police said.

The gun belonged to the family of the 17-year-old, the police spokesperson said. A second teenager was also arrested after police were alerted about him allegedly giving threats via Snapchat to harm and shoot the 17-year-old suspect.

The sheriff's office said the teenager, who is 18 years holding a gun in the SnapChat video, was charged with felony terroristic threats.

According to friends and family, Chrzan was gearing up to graduate from Mount Zion High School in a few weeks. "No family should ever have to bury a child at this age," said family friend Tiffany Cantrell adding: "As you can imagine, this is one of the hardest things all of us have ever went through."
