Drive-by shooting narrowly misses girl

A bullet fired into a house in Melbourne's north has narrowly missed a young girl who was watching television.

Hume Crime Investigation Unit detectives say the shot fired into the Broadmeadows house passed through the front window, continued on through the television and into another wall, missing the 10-year-old girl by about 50 centimetres.

She was at home with her family in Waranga Crescent when the drive-by shooting occurred about 6.30pm (AEST) on Wednesday.

Investigators would like to hear from anyone who may have seen a white utility in the area at the time.

It was the second drive-by shooting in Melbourne's north this week.

On Monday night, gunshots were fired from a car at a Roxburgh Park house on Thames Way around 11.15pm.

The two people at home at the time were not injured.
