OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - A 6-year-old girl was struck in the head by what police say was a celebratory gunfire bullet during New Year's Eve parties in Northern California.

The East Bay Times reports the child, who has not been identified, is in stable condition at a hospital Tuesday.

Police say the girl was shot sometime before 2 a.m. during a family party in her East Oakland backyard.

Investigators say the bullet was apparently fired into the air from another location nearby. Detectives are trying to track down the shooter.

The newspaper says a family member drove the girl to a hospital.
