A teenage girl was shot in the head Friday in a drive-by attack in Palmdale.

The victim, who is about 16 years old, was shot just after noon in the 37800 block of Melton Avenue and was undergoing surgery this afternoon, said Lt. Adam Ellison of the Palmdale sheriff’s station.

A search was underway for male suspects in a white compact car, he said.

Investigators believe the shooters were gang members but the victim had no known or suspected gang ties, Ellison said.
