Two-year old girl murdered at point blank range

By  |  372 Comments

Witnesses in the Detroit area say the saw a man walk up to two kids playing in a yard, where he first shot a a 2-year-old girl “point-blank,” then turned the gun on her family.

“He shot the baby,” said Andy Anderson, 51, of Detroit who was standing near a car when the shooting started. “I thought, ‘No, he didn’t.’ And then he turned the gun and started shooting on the porch.”

Anderson knew immediately that the 2-year-old was dead, according to a report by

As about nine shots rang out, Anderson ducked behind a car.

“I tried to scoot up under the car because I thought he was gonna kill everybody,” he said.

Anderson said the shooting were done “casually.”

Police reports called the shooting a drive-by and said the children were caught in the crossfire, which does not match the reports of witnesses like Anderson.

Ten minutes before the fatal shooting, Anderson’s grandchildren were riding inline skates with the girls who were shot. His grandkids went inside for dinner, and the shooter approached, Anderson said.

“My daughter’s been up crying all night,” he said.

An autopsy was conducted Wednesday morning on the 2-year-old girl, according to the Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office. According to a report by a local television affiliate, a 12-year-old girl was also shot and remains in critical condition and a 30-year-old man was injured.

Aaron Sims, 36, a community advocate who lives nearby said a vigil is planned at the scene at about 7 p.m. Thursday.

“For something like this to happen to a child whose life hasn’t even started yet, it’s beyond sad,” he said.

He said the neighborhood, normally full of the sounds of playing children, has gone quiet.

“You come over here any given day there’s kids everywhere,” Sims said. “The kids are about to be stuck in the house for probably the rest of the summer.”

Michigan State Police are continuing the investigation.

    This some Crazy Shit! If their were witnesses, why no arrest? Sometimes I think ppl are paid by the Gov to do Shit like this, especially when you have witnesses & no arrests! Just like at the BET awards! Let some shots rang out at the CMA’S & see how fast an arrest is made!

    This couldn’t have happened if that two-year wasn’t deprived of her 2nd Amendment right to bear arms.

    Too many evil people are running around with guns killing innocent people and children. Whenever you take the life of a baby, you are a coward. I hope you rot in hell. R.I.P angel.

    Fortunately this miscreant has been apprehended. He will never see the light of day again. They are waiting for him in the big house.

    Black boys with a rudder, a solid male role model preferably a father to guide them are rare indeed.
    Yet MOST of the saved men and women in the Christian community think it is perfectly okay for girls to have babies so long as they praise Jesus.

    Women wholesale cannot raise a self respecting man. Oh yes, there are exceptions, but when the overwhelming majority of boys do not have any male affirming guides they default to the emotional level of women,
    the only adult they’ve consistently known.

    This shooting was supposedly about not having gotten “respect”. At least he was arrested right away. So now a few will be in jail, two in the hospital and a two year old in a early grave.

    In the background, yet another vigil, yet another shrine.

      That is not true…I raised 4 self sufficient, contributing Black Male members of society,who are responsible fathers,and law abiding citizens right here in the “D”…(no deposit …no return..)it is just that simple. This “GUN” Crazy society and lack of “parenting skills” is a DEADLY COMBINATION.
