An 8-year-old girl died after she was shot during a night of violence across metro Atlanta.
The shooting occurred just before 10 p.m. on University Avenue near I-75/85. The shooting happened in the same area as the deadly shooting death of Rayshard Brooks by a former Atlanta Police officer last month.
According to police, the child was riding in a car with her mom and an adult friend when car exited the interstate near the intersection of University Avenue and Pryor Road. Police said the driver was attempting to enter the parking lot on the 1200 block of Pryor Road when they were confronted by a group of armed individuals who were blocking the entrance.
Someone in the group began shooting at the car, hitting it multiple times including the shot that hit the child.
It appears that our country is devolving into chaos as our “leaders” wring their hands.
