The girl was riding in a car late Tuesday morning when a shooter in another vehicle fired into the car. Police believe the driver of the car was the intended target.

Madison police spokesman Joel DeSpain said Wednesday the girl remains in “very critical condition.” No arrests have been made.

On Tuesday, Madison leaders called for people to speak out, invest in community resources and act as role models to end the shootings during a spate of gun violence in Wisconsin’s capital.
