Milwaukee -- An 11-year-old girl was transported to Children's Hospital after she was shot inside of a convenience store, around 6:55 p.m.

Police say two suspects entered the store at the 2500 block of W Hopkins, attempting a robbery. 

Police don't know why the girl was shot, but her injury is non-life threatening. 

CBS 58 stopped by looking for any surveillance tape, but the store clerk said they couldn't give it to us right now.

Mayor Tom Barrett plans to address the weekend shootings at press conference Monday afternoon.

There are currently no suspects in custody.
