An anonymous 911 caller said the mother of a 4-year-old girl who was shot in Trotwood was “hysterical” when she pulled into the McDonald’s parking lot.

TROTWOOD, Ohio — A 4-year-old girl was wounded Wednesday, struck by gunfire while riding in the back of a vehicle, according to reports.

Trotwood Police Chief Erik L. Wilson tells the Dayton Daily News that the girl was in the back of a vehicle driven by her mother at about 6:45 p.m. when another vehicle pulled up and several shots were fired.

The girl was hit, so the mother pulled into the parking lot of a McDonalds to get help, according to ABC 22.

Any time you have a young child caught up in the middle of something like this, its definitely disconcerting, Wilson tells the Daily News. “… We want to do everything we can to find out who did this and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law.
