St. Louis (KSDK) - A 12-year-old girl is recovering after she was hit by a stray bullet from a gun battle in north St. Louis.

Police say they have a pretty good idea who they're looking for because there is a really good picture of the two men who authorities describe as the suspects in the shooting.

They are the men St. Louis Police say started shooting at each other near a crowded park. It happened Sunday just before 8 p.m.

The little girl, who was with a large group at Loretta Hall Park on the corner of 15th and Cole Streets, was playing when the shooting happened.

Investigators say the suspects started yelling at each other and firing several shots at each other.

A stray bullet hit the 12-year-old in the hand. She was hospitalized but police say she's expected to be okay.

The image of the suspects appears to come from a camera on the property of O'Fallon Place Apartments.

After the shoot-out, both men ran in different directions toward the apartments.

If you have any information call Crimestoppers at 866-371-TIPS.

This case adds to a violent weekend in St. Louis. At least 10 people were shot and four stabbed.
