YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) -- Yakima Police say they have no suspects in the shooting earlier this week that critically injured a 6-year-old girl.

Neighbors have identified the girl as Sitlaly Calva-Acevedo and say they had been told she was hit twice in the chest or abdomen when a gunman opened fire on a group of adults and children in the front yard of her Yakima home.

The Yakima Herald reports no arrests have been made in the Wednesday night shooting, which happened across the street from Barge-Lincoln Elementary School. It's the latest in a string of Yakima shootings that have claimed innocent victims.

Yakima Detective Sgt. Mike Pollard confirmed the girl was shot twice, although he did not specify where. She was listed in critical condition in the intensive care unit at Seattle's Harborview Medical Center.
