Girl Shot in Apparent Crossfire While Riding in Car Dies
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Minneapolis police have confirmed that a 6-year-old girl shot in the head where her mother drove through what authorities believe was a shootout between rival gangs has died.
Aniya Allen was shot in an apparent crossfire Monday after she and her mother were returning home after a day of shopping and swimming. Family and supporters had been keeping vigil at a Minneapolis hospital since the shooting.
Activist K.G. Wilson, who is Allen’s grandfather, posted on Facebook Wednesday that Allen had died. Wilson wrote that he "went from sad to mad."
