9-year-old girl shot through kitchen window

Posted: Updated:

A 9-year-old Dallas girl is in critical condition after she was shot while inside her home. 

At about 11:30 AM Saturday, Dallas police officers responded to a call in the 400 block of W. Yarmouth St. regarding shots fired into a house. 

When officers arrived, they discovered a 9-year-old girl had been struck by a bullet that had shattered the kitchen window.  Officers say a neighbor had been target practicing in a yard next door and had fired the shot that hit the little girl. 

The 9-year-old girl was taken to Children's Medical Center in Dallas and was last listed in critical condition. 

Police arrested 20-year-old Cristian Manzano on a charge of injury to a child-serious bodily injury and discharging a firearm in a municipality greater than 100,000 residents. 

Manzano has a history of run-ins with the law.  His record includes unlawful carrying of a weapon, possession of a controlled substance and marijuana possession.
