Girl, 14, in LR park hit in leg by ar­row

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - ARKANSAS -

A 14-year-old girl was hit with a cross­bow ar­row while play­ing soccer in All­sopp Park on Fri­day evening, Lit­tle Rock po­lice said.

Of­fi­cer Steve Moore said the girl was prac­tic­ing with her brother and fa­ther when they heard her scream and saw the ar­row in her shin about 7:15 p.m.

It ap­peared to be an ar­row typ­i­cally used for hunt­ing, and

the girl pulled it out of her leg her­self, Moore said. Of­fi­cers searched the area Fri­day night but were un­able to find the per­son who shot it.

The girl was taken to a hospi­tal with in­juries that were not life-threat­en­ing, po­lice said.
