The six year old girl is now in stable condition and expected to recover fully and she'll probably carry a souvenir for shooting for the rest of her life. They do not have any plans to remove the bullet. It will stay in her head. It's too dangerous. It's very high risk to remove that bullet Oakland police officer. John Watson says that complicates the effort to catch the shooter. There can be no ballistics testing on the bullet which was one of many celebratory shots detected by the city's shot spotter system in the area that night it is going to be difficult because there were multiple activation. We also know that bullet can travel a great distance. We know that can travel close to a mile some can go further than a mile, depending on the type of firearm weather to handgun a rifle. And also the caliber Watson says improving technology could help someday. But for now, probably no one will be held to account for this shooting in Oakland. Doug, sovereign KCBS.
