PACIFIC, MO (KPLR) - Pacific police are looking for the person who shot into the Family Video store that injuring a 7 year old girl.  She was in the store with her family when something came through the window.  Broken glass went into her nose and punctured her sinus cavity.

The police chief suspects teens are responsible.   The Chief stated, “Whatever happened to the old Nerf football, the Nerf guns, and the little target guns.  Go out and play with something like that.  Don't play with something where you're going to end up hurting somebody and in this case, yeah, someone got hurt."

Investigators say the suspects also damaged three windows at the Meramec Valley Middle School just down the street.   Detectives are looking for other buildings that may have been damaged.
