A federal gang task force is joining police in East Chicago, Indiana, in the search for suspects in the shooting of two young girls.

Friends and family were among those gathering Thursday evening to march and hold a vigil near the home where 12-year-old Arianna Quiroz and her 11-year-old cousin Selena were shot on Tuesday.

Both girls remain hospitalized.

A family friend says Arianna's condition is improving.

East Chicago Police say the girls were in the living room of the house when a resident heard a vehicle stop outside followed by multiple gunshots.
