Several shots were fired at a home in north Natomas late last night, injuring one person.

At about 11:11 p.m. unknown suspects fired multiple shots at a home on the 4900 block of Alterra Way.

A 10-year-old girl inside the house suffered a gunshot wound to her arm which police said was non life-threatening. Family members met police and fire en route to the hospital and paramedics transported the girl to a local medical facility.
