A 12-year-old girl was shot and critically wounded last night in her high-rise apartment by a teen-age friend who had a revolver, city police said.
It was the third such shooting in the city in less than a month.
The victim, Monet Walker, of the Lexington Terrace public-housing complex in the 700 block of W. Saratoga St., was listed in critical and unstable condition today at University of Maryland Medical Center, said a hospital spokeswoman Jill Bloom.
Monet suffered a gunshot wound of the head, police said. The shot was fired about an arm's length away, police said.
