(KSL News) A 14-year-old girl is shot while walking to a party in Salt Lake City.

Police say the girl was walking with a group when a car pulled up beside them near Navajo and Pacific Avenue, and someone in the back seat pulled out a gun.

The gun didn't fire, so witnesses say someone in the front seat tossed the passenger another gun.
