An 8-year-old girl was shot in the leg with an arrow outside the Lawrence Hall of Science this morning, a University of California at Berkeley police captain said. The girl, who was on a school trip at the science center, located at 1 Centennial Drive, was playing on a large sculpture of a whale in a courtyard when she was shot at about 10:10 a.m., police Capt. Stephen Roderick said. “She was just climbing on the whale when, out of nowhere, an arrow went through her left leg,” he said.

The girl was taken to a hospital, where the arrow was surgically removed. “She’s a trooper,” Roderick said. “Her mother is with her and she’s doing fine.” UC Berkeley investigators are trying to reconstruct the arrow’s trajectory, a difficult task when “an arrow can travel 500 to 1,000 yards,” Roderick said. Police will be canvassing surrounding neighborhoods this evening to see if any residents had seen someone shooting arrows.
