 PATERSON, NJ (NEWS 12 NEW JERSEY/CNN) – Police in New Jersey are looking for the shooter whose stray bullet left a little girl brain dead.

Genesis Rincon, 12, was on her way to a store on her scooter Saturday night when she was shot.

The two other children with her were not harmed.

Her father, Alexis Rincon, hopes someone saw something and will come forth with information.

"I was born and raised in Paterson. Whoever sees this knows me - say something. That was my daughter,” Rincon said. “That was my first daughter."

Police say the shooting may be connected to a separate shooting in the same area earlier in the day.
