      Gunman Shoots Girl in Cheek, 5-Year-Old Hospitalized

      A 5-year-old girl is lucky to be alive after a bullet hit her cheek.Police say one more inch to the right and it could have been much worse.The five-year-old had a bandage on her head when she was rushed to the hospital, with her mother by her side.All Fresno Police say the child was hit by a bullet from a gunman in a possible drive-by shooting.But witnesses to the shooting who did not want to go on camera for fear of retaliation are painting a much more despicable crime.Witnesses say it appeared the little girl was targeted by the shooter.Several witnesses said a man walked up to the girl's window, pulled out a gun and fired several shots through the window.Witnesses say as many as four or five and then took off running.Officers say they cannot confirm this was a targeted shooting.Officers say witnesses aren't cooperating and there is little to no information on a possible motive.Those living in the neighborhood say there is a lot of gang activity along with drug dealing.Officers are looking for the gunman.
