A Texas woman has been charged with aggravated assault after a fight between middle school girls ended with a 6-year-old boy getting shot twice, officials said.

On March 2, deputies said a fight between middle school girls started earlier in the day but continued later on in a neighborhood in Spring, according to Harris County Constable Precinct 4.

While the girls were fighting, a woman, later identified as 34-year-old Brittany Sanders, came out from a nearby home and fired a warning shot into the air, police said.

After the warning shot was fired, the girls then ran back to the car they arrived in to the location, according to officials.

“The suspect then fires two to three more shots towards the vehicle, striking within that vehicle a 6-year-old male,” Precinct 4 Cpt. Buddy Gheen said, KPRC reported.

The victim was transported in the vehicle to an area hospital to be treated for what deputies said were injuries to his arm and thigh.
