An 11-year-old Kirksville, Missouri girl was traveling with her family on Interstate 55 when the driver's side window suddenly blew out. The incident occurred near the 2-mile marker in Missouri.
According to the Pemiscot County Sheriff, "the first thought was the heat caused it; however, the 11-year-old was in the back seat and began complaining of pain in her neck. It was determined she had been shot by a 9mm round."
The girl was airlifted to a hospital in Memphis, TN for treatment.
Deputies are investigating a person who was shooting his pistol in the area at the same time. If a shot missed the berm, it would be in line with I-55. Ballistic testing is being done on two pistols.
The girl was reportedly released from the hospital later that evening and the family continue on its vacation.
