HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- An armed man who police say shot at a woman but hit a 13-year-old girl on Tuesday night is on the run.

A search got underway in the wake of a shooting inside an apartment unit in the 1200 block of Redford Street, which is just off the Gulf Freeway, in Houston's Edgebrook area.

Lt. Larry Crowson, of the Houston Police Department, said Clear Lake Patrol officers were called to the apartment complex just after 9 p.m.

A fight was taking place between two adults when the man began shooting at the woman, Crowson said. One of the shots hit the girl in the leg. She was rushed to the hospital, stabilized, and is expected to be OK, the lieutenant added.

The suspected gunman took off. Police believe they know who the person is but did not provide an identity or a description.

Officers are working on pressing charges and should obtain a warrant for his arrest soon.
