Following a shooting incident where an 8-year-old girl sustained non-life-threatening injuries, two male suspects aged 15 and 18 were taken into custody.

The incident occurred on Friday night, and the victim was admitted to St. Mary’s Hospital in West Palm Beach, with stable condition, as per Fort Pierce spokeswoman, April Lee.

No other injuries were reported.

The shooting occurred at around 6:15 pm at the 1200 block of Avenue O.
