Richard Moreno, 23, was just outside the girl’s home when the firearm went off, authorities said. The bullet went through a wall and struck the girl in the leg while she was in another room. Moreno then fled the scene, according to authorities, who later arrested him in his mother’s home.
The girl was recovering, according to Phoenix television station KPHO.
