NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Authorities say a 4-year-old girl who was shot in the abdomen in New Orleans is in stable condition. The girl's identity is being withheld. New Orleans Police spokeswoman Jonette Williams says the toddler was shot Saturday when someone started shooting at a group of
people, including the girl's mother, who were standing outside. Jeb Tate, a spokesman for LSU Interim Public hospital, said the girl was brought to the hospital in critical condition. Her condition was upgraded to stable by Sunday.
