A 2-year-old girl fighting for her life after she was shot in the head during a shootout between two vehicles. The shooting occurred around 2 am in north Houston near Benmar and City View Place.

The little girl was in the backseat of her mother's gray Lincoln at an intersection during the shootout.

The girls mother took her to Houston Northwest Medical Center then she was later life-flighted to Memorial Hermann Hospital.

According to ABC13, Houston Police Executive Asst. Chief Troy Finner said the child, the child's mom and dad and another adult were in the Lincoln when someone in that car fired several rounds. Finner said that's when another person fired back into the Lincoln and hit the little girl.

"Whoever is responsible for this shooting, turn yourselves in. We're batting 1,000 in the City of Houston. Right now, if anyone kills or shoots one of our kids, we're going after them," Finner said. "Anyone who harms a kid, we'll put you in jail."
