MIDLAND, Texas (AP) — A 3-year-old girl was been shot in a gunfight between police and 16-year-old male suspect during a drug raid at a West Texas house.

The Texas Department of Public Safety says Midland police officers were serving a search warrant at a house near Hogan Park in eastern Midland Wednesday night when a gunfight ensued with the teenage suspect that wounded the child.

DPS Sgt. Oscar Villarreal said Friday that the girl was in stable condition at a hospital and the teen was taken into custody.

It was unclear if they were related, and Villarreal had no further information on the child.
