Police say the stray round that struck the 14-year-old girl, identified in local media accounts as Valentina Orellana-Peralta, and apparently was fired inadvertently into the changing room by an LAPD officer from the other side of the wall.
 
At the time of the Dec. 23 shooting, the girl was shopping with her mother for a dress for her upcoming quinceanera, a 15th birthday celebration in Hispanic traditions, Los Angeles news outlets reported.
 
LAPD officers dispatched to the store were responding to multiple radio calls of an assault with a deadly weapon and a possible shooting in progress, police said.
 
The suspect, who police said had just attacked a woman on the upper floor of the clothing store when officers arrived, was also killed in the shooting. The woman was taken to an area hospital for treatment of her injuries.
 
The girl was discovered shot to death moments later, after officers noticed a bullet hole in a wall directly behind where the suspect had been standing and searched the premises to find the 14-year-old in a dressing room on the other side of that wall in the line of fire, police said.
