OAKLAND -- A 12-year-old girl was shot in the leg in East Oakland on Wednesday evening, police said.

The girl's injury was not life threatening and she was rushed to an Oakland hospital for treatment.

Police said the girl was sitting in a car with her father when she was shot.

No one else was injured.

Police were called to the home in the 6200 block of Harmon Avenue at 5:20 p.m. Police said several houses in the area were hit by gunfire.

Police don't believe the girl was the target. No one has been arrested and a motive in the shooting was not immediately known.

This shooting comes just three weeks after Luis Hernandez, 11, was shot while sleeping in his bed at his family's home in the 200 block of Makin Road. He is recovering.

In the month of August, two children, ages 7 and 12, and a 14-year-old boy were shot and wounded in separate and unrelated shootings in East and West Oakland. All of them survived, but those shootings killed two adults.
