An 8-year-old girl was injured Saturday when a bullet flew through the window of an Englewood home on the South Side.

She was sitting on a couch at 11:18 p.m. inside the home on Wood Street when the stray bullet came through the window and grazed her on her head, according to Chicago police. She was taken to Comer Children’s Hospital in fair condition.

It was not immediately clear where the shots were fired from, police said. No one is in custody as Area One detectives investigate.
