Do you know anything about the gunman who fired a round that ended up hitting a 6-year-old girl in Oakland last week? If so, there could be some big bucks in it for you.

Oakland police are asking the community to help them find out who sprayed gunfire at a house on Seminary Avenue at about 12:15 a.m. on Sept. 28.

One of the rounds hit a 6-year-old girl who was sleeping in her parents' bedroom. The bullet hit the girl in the arm and it traveled into her chest. Her injuries are not considered life-threatening and she's expected to be ok.

A $10,000 reward is being offered to help find out who fired the bullets.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact Sgt. P. Gonzales with Oakland police's criminal investigation division at 510-238-3328.

Police say the shooting was gang-related but remind potential tipsters that Oakland is a sanctuary city, so anyone can offer informtion without worrying that police will ask for personal information, such as where they live.
