Police say a costumed 9-year-old girl was accidentally shot outside a western Pennsylvania home during a Halloween party by a relative who thought she was a skunk. New Sewickley Township police say the girl was over a hillside and wearing a black costume and a black hat with a white tassel. Chief Ronald Leindecker says a male relative mistook her for a skunk and fired a shotgun, hitting her in the shoulder Saturday night.
Rule #1 when you aim a gun- only shoot at what you mean to kill.
Rule #2 when you pull the trigger- know EXACTLY what you’re shooting.
Rule #3 when you let people who don’t know rules #1-2 have a gun, you end up with stories like this endlessly multiplied.
