FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - Fort Wayne police say a 7-year-old girl is expected to make a full recovery after stray gunfire struck her leg while she slept in a bed.

Police say the 7-year-old was struck once near a knee and once in the bottom of a foot early Sunday after bullets entered the house from outside. She was taken to a hospital in serious condition.

WPTA-TV reports officers found nearly 20 casings outside the girl's home and concluded that a gun battle had taken place outside the residence.

Neighbors said nearby homes also had bullet holes.
