    HAMPTON, Va. - Hampton police say a 15-year-old girl was shot while she was sleeping.

    Police tell WAVY.com they got the call at 12:33 a.m. for a report of shots fired in the 1300 block of Chesapeake Avenue. When officers arrived at the scene, they found a 15-year-old girl had been shot. Police say she was in bed inside her house at the time. A bullet had come through the house and struck her in the upper torso area.

    Corporal Allison N. Quińones with Hampton Police told WAVY.com the victim is still in the hospital. Her injuries are serious, but she is expected to be okay.

    In the neighborhood Tuesday morning, Kelley Murphy and her friend walk the 1300 block of Chesapeake Avenue. The walk that route everyday and consider it safe. They can't believe a young girl was shot late just hours before.

    "I'm surprised because it's a really nice neighborhood. It's usually quiet. Don't really have a lot of action like that going on here," says Murphy.

    Neighbors, who don't want to be identified, tell WAVY.com around 12:30 Tuesday morning they heard a car drive past their houses and slow down. Then they say they heard several gunshots before a car sped up and drove away.

    Detectives are still investigating whether this was a drive-by shooting.

    I wonder if it was random violence or did the home owners do something to put thier child in harms way?

    A crime is a crime, and this type of activity should equate to decades in prison...not more gun control.
