Two young girls were wounded inside a house in a drive-by shooting on the west side of Cleveland on Tuesday, local media reported.
The girls, aged three and nine, were hit when half a dozen shots were fired into the property from a passing vehicle.
The three-year-old was shot in the face and the nine-year-old shot in the back at about 10:20 p.m. local time.
The children were being treated in hospital, police told the Plain Dealer newspaper.
Cleveland police spokeswoman is yet to comment on the shooting.
