A 2-year-old girl was shot in the leg early Saturday afternoon at a home on Tucson's south side.

By the time deputies arrived at the home in the 6700 block of South Vereda de los Arboles, near West Valencia and South Mission roads, the toddler had been taken to a hospital by ambulance, said Deputy Tracy Suitt, a spokesman for the Pima County Sheriff's Department.

The girl's injuries are non-life-threatening, he said.

No further information was available at press time.

Anyone with information about the incident should call 911 or 88-CRIME.
