News24 reports that according to Westrand police spokesperson Captain Appel Ernst, a few men entered their house on Tuesday evening where the girl had been home alone.
“When she allegedly screamed, the suspects opened fire on her. She was hit approximately nine times in the upper body, leg and arm,” Ernst said.
It is understood that the men ransacked the house after shooting her.
The girl was rushed to hospital by her mother, who found her later, but is in a stable condition, reports News24.
Iol reports that despite the rumours regarding a ‘gang’ operating in the area, police have not been able to confirm these claims due to a lack of evidence.
