HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) — Police say a 22-month-old girl was shot in a possible drive-by shooting at a home in southwestern Ohio.

Her mother, Tiffany Lawrence, tells The Cincinnati Enquirer that a bullet came through the front door and hit the girl in the mouth on Wednesday night in Hamilton, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) north of Cincinnati. She was taken to a hospital, where her mother said the girl was on a ventilator and scheduled for surgery.

Neighbors told WCPO-TV that someone drove past the home twice and repeatedly fired.

Police investigating the shooting haven’t publicly discussed details about what happened, including any possible suspect or motive.
