A 12 year old girl from Paterson, New Jersey has been declared brain dead after she was shot this weekend.

Genesis Rincon was riding her scooter Saturday night on Rosa Parks Boulevard when she was hit in the head by a stray bullet.  Two friends that were riding with Rincon were not injured.

Police don't believe she was the intended target.  They are investigating whether the shooting was related to another shooting in the area earlier in the day.

Rincon's parents are expected to donate her organs.
