A Detroit girl, 7, was shot today by her own father as she and her mother attempted to flee a domestic dispute. The man fired at the departing car and the girl was hit. 

The shooter then barricaded himself in the house, but surrendered shortly thereafter. 

Fox 2 reports the incident happened on Appoline Street, near West Chicago Boulevard:

Early Thursday morning, police received a report that an argument between a couple had escalated to the point the dad fired shots, striking the car being driven by the mother.

The girl was driven to a hospital by her mother, and is currently in stable condition.
