    An 11-year-old girl was inside a residence in the Roseland neighborhood when a bullet went through a window and hit her in the arm Sunday afternoon on the Far South Side.

    It happened at 1:15 p.m., while the girl was inside a residence in the 10000 block of South Perry Ave., according to a Calumet District police lieutenant.

    Paramedics responded at 1:16 p.m. and took her in serious, but stable condition to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, according to Fire Media Affairs spokesman Joe Roccasalva.

    The lieutenant said the child was not the target, but it was not known immediately who, if anyone, was inside the residence with her.

    Calumet Area detectives are investigating.
