Kansas teen in custody after girl, 6, shot

MISSION, Kan. (AP) -- Police in a Kansas City suburb have taken a 14-year-old boy into custody after a 6-year-old girl was shot and wounded in an office building.

Mission Police Capt. David Moloy says the girl was shot in the leg Tuesday morning in an office. Her condition was not known but Moloy says she was talking when she was being taken to a hospital.

Moloy says the teenager fled the scene on foot after the shooting. He was apprehended less than a block away about an hour later.

He says he couldn't comment on whether the teenager and the child were related or if the shooting appeared intentional.
