A Franklin High School student was shot on Wednesday by a BB or airsoft gun as she walked along an Elk Grove street, the Elk Grove Police Department reports.

The girl was in the 10000 block of Wild Orchid Way about 2 p.m. when she heard a loud popping sound and then sensed something hit her leg. At the same time, she saw a teen with dirty blond hair partially outside a passenger window of what may have been a Honda car, police said.

The girl was taken to a hospital for medical treatment. Officers responded to the area but could not find the shooter.
