A teenage girl was shot Friday near the Gaithersburg Library in what police have called an accident, reports WUSA TV.
Montgomery County Police say a 17-year-old girl was shot and is expected to survive. Officers said the shooting may have been over a jacket but that has yet to be determined. Authorities do not believe the incident was a robbery.
The shooting happened about 1 p.m. at 18330 Montgomery Village Avenue and Christopher Lane.
The teen was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, the TV station.
The library re-opened in January after a major renovation.
