A 10-year-old girl who was killed Saturday night appears to have been watching TV inside the family home when she was shot.

Elvira Campos and her two parents were shot Saturday in their home about 11 miles northeast of Sacramento when an unknown number of gunmen walked up to the front door, and without opening it, began shooting indiscriminately inside, according to police and media reports.

“You have to be hard pressed to think a 10-year-old girl was the intended target,” Sacramento County sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Jason Ramos told the Associated Press.

Investigators believe the shooting may have been gang related, according to the Associated Press.
