- A teenage girl was shot in the neck while sitting in a pickup truck in east Oak Cliff.

It happened just before 1 a.m. Wednesday in the 2200 block of Belknap Avenue, near Corinth Street and Illinois Avenue.

Dallas police said a girl and her male companion were parked off the road when a small gray car with several men inside pulled up. At least one person in the car opened fire and then they took off.

Responding officers found the girl, who is believed to be about 16 or 17 years old, with a gunshot wound to the neck. She was taken to the hospital in serious condition. Her male friend was not hurt.

Police are still looking for the gunmen who got away. They are hoping to find surveillance video of the shooting.

The motive is still unclear, police said.
