A 15-year-old was shot in her head and fighting for her life in hospital.
The teen was found with a gunshot wound to her head on Saturday night in Virgo Road in Port Elizabeth’s northern suburbs.
Police responded to a shooting incident around 9:25 a.m. and found the girl in the street.
Police spokeswoman Priscilla Naidu said there were no eyewitnesses at the time of the police arrival and it is unclear what happened.
The girl was admitted to a local hospital in critical condition.
By Sunday morning, police had not yet taken a statement from the victim as her condition had not improved much overnight.
Naidu says an attempted murder case has been opened and all clues are being followed.
