Lt. Jeremy Conrad of HPD said the child was riding in a car with her mother when the bullet struck. The vehicle was moving north on Adams Street. Police do not believe the vehicle or family was targeted purposely; Conrad referred to the bullet as a "stray round."

The child was transported via helicopter for medical treatment.

Police are not releasing information on the suspect or the child's status. Conrad said the department was hoping to "wrap up" the investigation sometime Wednesday.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
