For one little girl and her family, it didn't quite go that way. Instead, the 6-year-old little girl was rushed to University Medical Center with a gunshot wound. Here's a snip from the Tucson Citizen:
Sheriff investigators have determined shots were fired outside the home, in which there were two adults ad three children.
The girl was sleeping on the couch and apparently was hit by a bullet that went through the home's front door.
She was alive when sheriff deputies arrived around 5 a.m. and airlifted to a local hospital, Ogden said.
She was taken to University Medical Center, said Tracy Koslowski of the Drexel Heights Fire District.
No more information has been released at this time, but this is very close to my neighborhood so needless to say I will be following closely. The complete article can be found here.
I really hope they find these sub-human creatures that did this to an innocent little girl who should have been going to school this morning with the rest of her peers. I am just disgusted and heartbroken for this little girl's family.
**UPDATE**- 10:45 a.m.
According to the updated article in the online version of the Arizona Daily Star the little girl's name is Analissa Monares-Leon, 6. Police are still looking for potential suspects in this case.
