Officials said a woman drove to 36-year-old Patrick Johnson’s house with three children in her car – a teenage boy, a teenage girl and then 12-year-old girl, The Advocate reported.

Police said the three children went up to the house and knocked on the door before returning to the car.

That is when police said 26-year-old Ester Williams came out of the house and fired one bullet at the car, WAFB reported. That bullet hit the 12-year-old, whose name has not been released.

According to witnesses, Williams dropped the gun after allegedly firing the shot and Johnson picked it up. The two then went back inside the house briefly before coming back out and fleeing the scene in a pickup truck, The Advocate reported.

Williams and Johnson were taken into custody during a traffic stop the same day, officials said.
