CINCINNATI (WXIX) - A third Saturday night shooting has been confirmed by Cincinnati Police Capt. Doug Snider.

7-year-old Taylor Carr was shot in the stomach while she was playing outside in a courtyard in the 3700 block of Reading Road, District Four officers said.

“It’s sad. I heard the shots from my porch and walked up here to see what’s going on and they said that’s what’s going on. A 7-year-old got shot. Bullets don’t have no targets or names on them and it’s so sad but I’m glad she’s okay though. My prayer are with her and her family,” North Avondale resident Donico Smith said.

Police say the child was transported to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital where she is listed as stable.

No word on what led up to the shooting or if there are any suspects.

Police say this is an ongoing investigation.

The girl was playing outside when she was shot.
