A 9-year-old girl has been accidentally shot by a relative who thought she was a skunk. Apparently, she was wearing a black dress and black hat with a white tassel outside a Halloween party, which led to the confusion. The male relative saw the young girl and thought she was a skunk, so he pulled out a shotgun and shot her in the shoulder.
According to authorities, the girl was awake and aware as she was being flown to the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, which is just 30 miles away from their home in New Sewickley Township. While you may be assuming that the relative was drinking, the news is reporting that he was not under the influence and we do not know if he will be charged at this time.

*READ* From the cameraman:
” I got a hit a total of 4 times. My helmet cam died and i made it down the mountain on my own. I was also hit in the side of my helmet and my eye pro was shot off of my face. We were doing overwatch on the village to recon and gather intel. I was point heading down the face of the hill with the LT. when we got hit. the rest of the squad was pinned down by machine gun fire. I didn’t start the video until a few mins into the firefight for obvious reasons. I came out into the open to draw fire so my squad could get to safety.”
“A round struck the tube by my hand of the 203 grenade launcher which knocked it out of my hands. When I picked the rifle back up it was still functional but the grenade launcher tube had a nice sized 7.62 cal bullet hole in it and was rendered useless. “

Earlier this morning, during the midnight premier of ‘Dark Knight Rises’ in Aurora, CO, a masked gunman was responsible for the death of 12 people and bringing injury to around 50. Law enforcement has confirmed the identity of the suspect as 24-year-old James Holmes and are currently searching his apartment , which they fear could have explosives, for more evidence as to why he did this.
Local reporter Justin Jones said the gunman was wearing body armour and a gas mask.
“The attacker shot a baby at point blank range,” he said.
During the opening credits, Dates saw someone in the front row answer a phone call and walk to the emergency door in the front of the theater, he said.
Less than an hour later a man, dressed in black and wearing a gas mask and what looked like body armor, marched into the theater through the same emergency exit. He lobbed two canisters and almost instantly the theater filled with smoke.
Dates and Seeger, like everyone else in the theater, thought the man and the smoke were all part of the show, they said. Right as their eyes began to tear up from the smoke, the man fired a shot at the ceiling.
The gunman moved through
the crowd and stopped in front of Seeger.
He pointed a long rifle at her face and said nothing.
He shot at the person sitting behind her, Seeger said.
“I have no idea why he didn’t shoot me,” Seeger said.
The two dove to the ground. They could feel hot shell casings hitting their legs as the tried to crawl through the dark theater now filled with smoke. Seeger’s forehead has a burned from one of the casings.
Her friends urged each other and the people around them to stay quiet, desperate not to draw the attention of the gunman who was working his way up the isle.
As she huddled on the ground, Seeger could see bodies of women and children lying around her.

to help a man bleeding next to her. She worked to find a pulse, but was forced to leave him behind as they tried to flee the theater.
People tried to exit through the main entrance of the theater, Seeger said. By then the gunman had worked his way to the back of the theater, shooting at people as they tried to run.
Seeger estimates she was trapped in the theater for 10 to 15 minutes. When she finally reached the lobby, she saw a police officer cocking a shot gun.

[UPDATE] Killer Has Been Identified, As Well As Possible Motive: Shooting At Oakland, CA Christian Univeristy
UPDATE: April 3rd, 2012 @ 12:00 PM – The shooter is being identified (allegedly) as 43-year-old, One L. Goh. According to some, he was often made fun of for his poor English speaking skills. As far as the authorites believe, Goh was looking for a former female administrator that had expelled him from Oikos University, earlier in the year. After realizing that she wasn’t there he went into an acupuncture room and told the students to “Get in line and I’m going to kill you all.” Although he has surrendered and been cooperative, he seems to be lacking remorse. It is believed that the death of his mother, brother and being expelled along with debt piling up, is the possible motive.
UPDATE: April 2nd, 2012 at 4:05 PM – 7 people are being confirmed dead after the shooting that took place this morning. The suspect has also been identified as a man in his 40′s and has been taken into custody by police. Along with the seven fatally shot, 3 other people were wounded as well. Pastor Jong Kim, the University’s founder, did verify that the suspect was enrolled at the school as a nursing student, but was no longer enrolled.
Although it hasn’t been verified yet, it is assumed that at least five people are dead after a man opened fire at Oikos University, a Christian school in Oakland, California at 10:30 this morning. Police are not letting people know how many are dead and/or wounded, but from the aerial shots, 5 bodies can be seen with sheets covering them.
Police described the suspect as an Asian male, 5-foot-9, wearing tan pants, according ABC station KGO-TV in San Francisco.

UPDATE February 28th, 2012 @ 10:10 AM: Demetrius Hewlin, 16, is the third victim to die after this horrendous shooting. His death was reported just hours after the announcement that King had passed. Hopefully, the bad news and deaths will end here, although this is already a horrible outcome.

MONTEREY PARK, Calif. (KABC) — A suspect armed with a crowbar was shot outside of a Carl’s Jr. restaurant in Monterey Park on Monday morning. Authorities say the incident began with the suspect breaking windows at Carl’s Jr. in the 1200 block of Avenida Cesar Chavez just before 9:30 a.m. The suspect then walked inside, while workers and customers ran outside. Police arrived as the suspect was exiting the fast-food restaurant. After repeatedly telling the suspect to drop the weapon, the suspect was Tasered. Police said the Taser was ineffective, and the suspect swung the three-foot metal bar at officers twice. At least one officer opened fire on the suspect. The suspect was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. No one else was injured in the incident. The officer-involved shooting is under investigation.

Benjamin Colton Barnes, 24, was suspected of gunning down a young mother of two daughters at the national park near Seattle.
Barnes is believed to have fled to the remote park on Sunday to hide after an earlier shooting at a New Year’s house party near Seattle that wounded four, two critically. Authorities suspect he shot ranger Margaret Anderson later on Sunday.
The SWAT team members were searching for the armed and dangerous man in quite horrendous conditions. They were even equipped with snow shoes to get through the snow and hopefully reach the suspect sooner than later.
Sadly, Barnes seems to be the result of war. He was over in Iraq for some time and has had trouble adjusting to reality here in the states. The young man apparently suffers from post-traumatic stress and at times felt suicidal, according to friends and family.
After a custody dispute with his daughter’s mother, she spoke out about how he had felt and why she had wanted the restraining order against the father of her child.
The woman told authorities he was suicidal and possibly suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder after deploying to Iraq in 2007-2008, and had once sent her a text message saying ‘I want to die.’
It’s tough to see such a young man lose all sight of reality after such a traumatizing experience, but then again, it’s tough to see a young man take the life of a mother, 34-year-old, who also had a husband that worked closely with her as a Rainier ranger as well.
All in all this is a perfect example of how war is a bad idea for the people who are commissioned to go over there and fight a battle they know nothing about as well as the people who are waiting for their return and have no idea what to expect. These soldiers should be given some medical care and attention when coming back from such a horrendous situation. These are usually young boys, with no idea of how to truly cope with the reality of what they see everyday, and we simply accept that they act like men and nothing has phased them.
Barnes’ temper led him to shoot at 4 different people at a house party in front of children. After that, he runs and hides (like he’s been taught to do in the armed forces) and is willing to protect himself at all costs. Unfortunately, the cost was Mrs. Anderson’s life. Many people were ruined on this day.
A plane searching the remote wilderness for Benjamin Colton Barnes, 24, on Monday discovered his body lying face down on the mountain hours from where authorities could get to him.
Anna, 3, Katie, 1, and Barnes child will now forever have lost a parent thanks to the tragedy that was caused (initially) overseas.
