Detroit police say an 83-year-old woman was hit by a stray bullet on the city's east side on Thursday night.

According to police, she was caught in the middle of what neighbors believe to be gang violence.

We're told she was sitting on her front porch around 7:45 p.m. when she was hit.

One neighbor said she saw a group of people, possibly gang members, before the gunshots rang out.

The woman was not home when 7 Action News stopped by, but family tells us she has been released from the hospital.
