Killed – Girl – Brandajah Smith (New Orleans, LA)

Brandajah Smith

(The Root) — It was supposed to be a quick trip to the store, a 10:30 a.m. walk for a gallon of milk.

On June 23 in New Orleans, Brandajah Smith — a dark-chocolate confection of a 5-year-old with a mind full of questions — needed milk for her cereal. But getting to the store and back was the kind of task easier to accomplish quickly without a little one in tow. So her mother, Ladericka Smith, set out alone and locked the door behind her, thinking that her little girl would be all right.

By 10:50 a.m., Smith found Brandajah lying unconscious but breathing at the bottom of a bedroom closet with a bullet wound near the center of her forehead. The little girl had found a .38 revolver belonging to the man with whom the family was staying.

Brandajah died a short time later after being taken off life support. Police arrested her mother and charged her with cruelty to a juvenile. In June a grand jury indicted Smith on charges of second-degree murder.

NEW ORLEANS, Jan. 14 (UPI) — A judge in New Orleans has reduced bail for a woman arrested after her 5-year-old daughter shot herself with a relative’s handgun.
Laderika Smith, 28, was charged with second-degree murder after her daughter, Brandajah, fatally shot herself June 23. A judge ruled on Sept. 26 that the evidence did not support that charge, but Smith remains in jail while prosecutors appeal, the (New Orleans) Times-Picayune reported.

Double Murder/Suicide – Girl – Shelbi Stewart (Louisville, KY)

Jillian Wood

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A Louisville man who fatally shot his former girlfriend and their 8-year-old daughter before killing himself had a history of violence against women and had been “in and out of mental institutions,” according to court documents and the victims’ family.

Shortly after noon Wednesday, Gary W. Stewart, 40, showed up with his mother at the home his 36-year-old former girlfriend, Jillian Wood, shared with her twin sister, Jocelyn Wood. He said he wanted to take his daughter and son swimming at his uncle’s condominium.

Mass Shooting – Killed – Girl – Aynis Vargas (Providence, RI)

Aynis Vargas

PROVIDENCE -
Aynis Vargas was shot and killed Saturday night while attending a graduation party at a house on 256 Hartford Ave.

Police said three other women, 44-year-old Vilma Tineo, 23-year-old Elaine Devargas, and 33-year-old Eugelyn Cabera-Martinez were also shot. Police said Tineo was treated and released from the hospital, Devargas remains in good condition and Cabera-Martinez is in fair condition.

Three additional suspects were charged Thursday in the killing of a 12-year-old girl in Providence, police said.

Aynis Vargas was shot to death at a graduation celebration at the Hartford Park housing project in June. Three women were injured in the shooting.

Prosecutors said the five men and the juvenile opened fire on the graduation party on June 15. Vargas was killed. Vilma Tineo, Elaine Devargas and Eugelyn Cabrera were injured.

About 10 minutes before midnight, Vasquez parked the van. Luis “Fat Boy” Gonzalez told Castro, “If you’re going to do it, do it right,” Baum said.

Double Murder/Attempted Suicide – Wounded – Girl (Las Vegas, NV)

Sophia Trujillo - wounded

The family of a victim in a deadly shooting this past weekend is praying for a survivor, a 4-year-old girl who’s still in the hospital.

The father of the 4-year-old said he’s not mad at the shooter but that he’s praying his little girl doesn’t die as a result of his actions.

Daniel Trujillo has had little sleep since Saturday. That’s when, according to a report from Las Vegas Metro police, Sophia was shot by her mother’s boyfriend, Manuel Mata III.

Police believe Mata also shot and killed Sophia’s mother, Maria Flores, and her half-sister, 17-year-old Elizabeth Gomez, before turning the gun on himself.

Mata survived his self-inflicted gunshot wound and is currently listed in critical condition.

Mata had been seen about 10:30 p.m. Friday sitting outside drinking a beer. Between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. Saturday, Sophia was dropped off at the home by a friend of Flores, the report said.

Killed – Girl – Sunni Reza (Albuquerque, NM)

Sunni Reza

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A father and son have been arrested in the shooting death of an 8-year-old who was killed while riding in a car in southeast Albuquerque, authorities said.

Police spokeswoman Tasia Martinez says 45-year-old David Candelaria Sr. and his 23-year-old son, David Candelaria Jr., were arrested after a SWAT standoff Sunday. The elder Candelaria faces an open murder charge in the Friday shooting of Sunni Reza. Both men were charged with conspiracy to commit a second-degree felony and tampering with evidence.

Martinez says the men did not know the girl or her family, but fired shots into the vehicle she was riding in with her father, uncle and brother after an altercation outside a community center.

Wounded – Paralyzed – Girl (Brooklyn, NY)

Tayloni Mazyck

Tayloni (Tutu) Mazyck, 11, was shot outside her Bedford-Stuyvesant home when a cold-hearted teen opened fire at rival gang members. The slug traveled through her neck and lodged in her spine.

She will never walk again.

“She can’t feel her legs. She has pain in her arms,” said her heartbroken mother Priscilla Mazyck, 46.

The violence unfolded about 8:30 p.m. Friday when a 17-year-old gunman started unloading as he walked down Throop Ave, shooting at two men standing outside 590 Gates Ave., police said.

Killed – Girl – Maggie Hollifield (Crozet, VA)

Maggie Hollifield

Tuesday at 10 a.m., the call went out for help. Albemarle County police say a 14-year-old boy shot Maggie and killed her on the 1400 block of McAllister Street. Albemarle County police remained on the scene for several hours to conduct their investigation.

Maggie Hollifield’s obituary describes a camp-loving 10-year-old who died from a “tragic accident” in her Crozet home. Albemarle Commonwealth’s Attorney Denise Lunsford agrees and will not seek indictments against the girl’s 13-year-old brother nor her parents for the fatal May 21 shooting.

Maggie’s father, Paul Hollifield, pastor at Commonwealth Christian Community, which operates Victory Hill Church of God After School Care, and his wife Anne had left their four children home that Tuesday morning to attend to business. That was not unusual for the home-schooled children, who ranged in ages from 9- to 15-years-old, according to a June 13 letter from Lunsford to Steve Sellers, Albemarle police chief, detailing what happened.

The night before, the brother had cleaned and taken apart his shotgun in the living room. The gun had been given to him by a relative and was not working properly, says the prosecutor’s letter.

The next morning, he was making a modification to the gun and had taken out the shells but forgot one in the chamber. In cycling shells through the gun to make sure it was working, the firearm discharged and struck Maggie, who was standing behind a love seat upon which their 9-year-old sibling was sitting.

Carly Simpson

Left: Carly Simpson; Right: Sawyer Simpson

Pickens County Sheriff Rick Clark said a Dacusville woman shot and killed her two children and tried to kill her husband Tuesday morning.

Deputies said they discovered the shooting after they were first dispatched to a wreck along Cherokee Trail when a pickup truck crashed before 6 a.m.

At the crash, Pickens County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Creed Hashe said deputies found an injured woman inside the vehicle and learned the truck was registered to 307 Cherokee Tr. When deputies went to the home about the accident, they found the shooting victims, Hashe said.

According to the arrest warrants, 35-year-old Suzanna Simpson was found in the wrecked vehicle and told responding paramedics who were helping her, “OK, OK, I shot my whole family.”

Clark said Simpson shot and killed her 5-year-old son Sawyer Simpson, 7-year-old daughter Carly Simpson and tried to kill her husband 34-year-old Michael Simpson. As of Wednesday night, Michael Simpson remained in critical condition at Greenville Memorial Hospital.

Triple Murder – Killed – Girl – Shelby Miller (Shingletown, CA)

female

SHINGLETOWN, CALIF. –  Sheriff’s deputies discovered the truck of a man suspected of fatally shooting his wife and two young daughters at their rural Northern California home, but he’s armed and dangerous and still on the loose, authorities said.

Humboldt County Sheriff’s officials received 911 calls late Wednesday afternoon reporting that Shane Franklin Miller, 45, was driving the truck in a rural area near Petrolia, Lt. Steve Knight said. Deputies found the truck after converging on the area, but Miller wasn’t there.

Kent said Shasta County Sheriff’s deputies received a call from Miller’s house around 7:45 p.m. Tuesday. When they arrived, they found the bodies of Miller’s wife, Sandy, 34, and two daughters, Shelby, 8, and Shasta, 4.

All three had been shot multiple times, Kent said.

SACRAMENTO, Dec. 23 (UPI) – Authorities say they still get about 30 tips a day about a missing northern California survivalist accused of killing his wife and two daughters in May.

U.S. marshals put Shane Franklin Miller, 45, on their “most wanted list” after Miller’s 34-year-old wife Sandra and their daughters, 4 and 8, were found shot to death in their home in Shingletown.

Their deaths came after Sandra Miller attempted to leave her husband and take the girls with her, police said.

A day after the killings, Miller’s truck was found in Humboldt County, where he had grown up and where Sandra Miller had fled in her attempt to to get away from her husband. It has a sparse population, few roads and dense forests. A week later, hikers found his dog wandering a trail through the redwoods.

Miller was described in a U.S. marshals affidavit as “a survivalist, who frequently uses cash for purchases.”

Killed – Girl (Mountain Village, AK)

female

A 5-year-old girl from the Southwest Alaska community of Mountain Village was shot and killed by her 8-year-old brother on Monday, Alaska State Troopers reported. The two young children had been left home alone when the shooting took place, troopers said.

Few details were available Tuesday, but the 8-year-old was reportedly playing with a .22-caliber Ruger rifle when the weapon discharged, fatally shooting his sister at about 2:20 p.m. Monday. It was not immediately clear if the shooting was accidental or intentional, and the girl’s body was sent to the State Medical Examiner’s office in Anchorage for an autopsy. The boy was familiar with the weapon and had used it the previous day to go hunting, according to Alaska State Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters.

Alaska, despite a low rate of intentional homicides committed with firearms, was the highest in the nation for overall firearm deaths per-capita in 2008, according to one study, coming in at more than 20 deaths by gun for every 100,000 people in the Last Frontier. There are, on average, about 1.5 guns per household in Alaska.

Killed – Shayla May Shonneker (Oregon City, OR)

Shayla May Shonneker1

A 9-year-old girl who was shot in the head around 5 p.m. Sunday afternoon in Oregon City died shortly after, according to Oregon City Police.

Police say the initial report was that the mother’s boyfriend was cleaning a handgun inside the house when it accidentally discharged. The bullet shot through the wall of the house, located near 12th and Division streets.

Police found the girl in the backyard upon their arrival where she had been playing, reports said.

Police also identified the shooter as Joseph Wade Wolters, 32, the live-in boyfriend of Shayla’s mother.

Double Murder/Suicide – Killed – Girl – Alivia Prestley (Fort Scott, KS)

Alivia Prestley

Officials have ruled a tragic incident that took place Wednesday, April 10, in rural Bourbon County a double murder-suicide.

A news release from the Bourbon County Sheriff’s Office said Monday that while there are lab reports still pending, an investigation has determined the incident, which left three people dead, to be a double homicide/suicide.

The bodies of Terry Lynn Prestley, 30, and her 5-year-old daughter, Alivia Prestley, were found by investigators Thursday in the burned remains of a house at 688 240th St., victims of gunshot wounds. A third body, that of 30-year-old Donald “Bryce” Prestley, was found in a vehicle just south of the residence. All of the bodies were transported last week to Kansas City, Kan., for autopsies.

As a result of the investigation and autopsies, it was determined that the female in the residence, as well as the child, died as a result of a firearm. Donald Prestley was found to have died as a result of a self-inflicted injury, the release said.

Bourbon County Sheriff Ron Gray said Monday that Donald Prestley died from a gunshot, although Gray didn’t know if the same gun was used in all three deaths. He declined to release what type of firearm was used. He said reports are preliminary and he has so far only received limited information on the case.

Gray said three dogs in the house also died, although he is not sure if the animals were killed by gunshots or if they died in the fire. He said he has not viewed any necropsy results for the animals.

The woman’s husband was found in a vehicle outside the home, dead of a self-inflicted injury.

On 04/10/13 at 3:15 p.m., fire units from Fort Scott Rural Fire and Garland Rural Fire were dispatched to 688 240th for a structure fire.  The Bourbon County Sheriff’s Office responded as well.  After arriving at the location a Deputy discovered a fatality near the scene.  The fire was extinguished and the area was secured by the Sheriff’s Office.  The Kansas Bureau of Investigation and the Kansas State Fire Marshal’s Office were contacted and a request was made for their assistance.  The incident is under investigation at this time.

Killed – Girl – Rahquell Carr (Miami-Dade, FL)

Rahquell Carr

MIAMI, FL — A little girl has died after being shot Saturday night in front of other children in a car in Northwest Miami-Dade.

Four-year-old Rahquel Carr suffered a gunshot wound to her upper body, according to Miami-Dade Police, and was pronounced dead at Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital.

Detectives are still investigating to determine who shot the gun inside the white Mercedes-Benz, which the Miami Herald reports was parked in the girl’s grandparents’ driveway in the 12000 block of Northwest 20th Avenue.

Relatives told CBS Miami they believe the girl’s six-year-old brother was playing with the gun when it went off accidentally, but MDPD spokesman Det. Roy Rutland said circumstances are still unclear.

“There’s a lot of speculation right now as to who had that firearm at the time, but we’re not in the business of speculating, we’re in the business of facts,” Rutland said, noting that an adult was nearby and several children were inside the car when the shooting happened around 6 p.m. Saturday evening.

The Associated Press reports the owner of both the weapon and the car was not present at the time of the shooting and has not been charged.

Killed – Gabrielle Menefee (Vestavia Hills, AL)

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office says a woman and a young child were found dead in their apartment Wednesday. Investigators believe their deaths may be connected to a body found in a car in Fairfield earlier Wednesday morning.

Family members say the victims were a mother and her three-year-old daughter. They also said another child, a five-year-old son, was airlifted to the hospital in critical condition.

According to Jefferson County Chief Deputy Randy Christian, the Sheriff’s Office received a call from the resident manager at The Park at Rocky Ridge Apartments around 11:30 a.m. The manager told them a woman and her two children were believed to be dead inside of their apartment.

Family members identified the deceased girl as Bozeman’s daughter, three-year-old Gabrielle Menefee, and the five-year-old boy airlifted to Children’s Hospital as her son Davion Menefee.

The father of the children and former boyfriend of Bozeman, Brandon Menefee of Midfield, was found dead in a vehicle in Fairfield.

The coroner’s office believes the gunshot wound was self-inflicted – leading detectives to believe the case is a murder-suicide.

Killed – Girl – Amera Jones (Detroit, MI)

Amera Jones

Amera Jones, a 7-year-old Detroit girl who was shot by her father, Ferdarius Shine, in February but had been expected to live, died on Friday, March 22 from complications resulting from those injuries, according to a homicide blotter provided by the Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Jones’ father, according to a Freep report from February, suffers from a mental illness but, inexplicably, was a concealed carry permit holder. Jones was shot four times. During the attack Shine also killed his grandmother Geraldine Bates, 68, and his aunt Santangela Williams, 49, according to the Freep report.

DETROIT (WWJ) - A 28-year-old Detroit man has been charged in the shooting deaths of his aunt and grandmother, and the critical wounding of his 7-year-old daughter.

Prosecutor Kym Worthy has charged Ferdarius Shine with two counts of first degree murder, three counts of assault with intent to murder, and one count of felony firearm. He’s due back in court for a preliminary exam on Feb. 28.

The charges stem from a shooting that occurred on Feb. 15 at a home in the 13500 block of Winthrop Street, near Greenfield Road on the city’s west

Worthy said Shine entered the home around 6:30 p.m., armed with a handgun and began shooting at everyone in the house.

Officers responding to the gunfire said they found 49-year-old Santangela Williams, 68-year-old Geraldine Bates, both of Detroit, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The women were transported to a local hospital by medics and pronounced dead on arrival.

Shine’s 7-year-old daughter suffered a non-fatal gunshot wound and was rushed to the hospital. Two other adults females in the home at the time of the incident were uninjured.

Shine is alleged to have fled the scene on foot and hours later checked himself into a local hospital, where he was detained and arrested.

Investigators say Shine, who is mentally disabled, has a concealed weapons permit. The weapon used in the shooting was recovered by police.

Wounded – Girl (Detroit, MI)

female

A twelve-year-old girl is hospitalized, the survivor of a violent home invasion that claimed the life of her adult sister.  They were inside their home when a group of men posing as police officers stormed inside and started shooting.

“The person who did this, he shot her too many times, and then shot an innocent child,” said Rohima Twiddy.

Her daughters were inside a house on Marlowe on the city’s west side when a group of men pretending to be Detroit police officers shot both of them killing 35-year-old Chaunta Davis and wounding her twelve-year-old sister, Ruthie Twiddy.

Police say it all started around 6:00 a.m.  The house went dark.  It appears the men cut the power.

According to witnesses inside the house at the time, moments later there was banging on the door and they heard someone yell Detroit police.  But it wasn’t.  A masked man came inside, confronted Davis, then shot her multiple times.  A man hid in the closet and called police.

Twelve-year-old Ruthie happened to be in the bathroom at the time.  She told investigators she thought it was the police.  She opened the door and that’s when the suspect shot her in the arm and both of her legs.

Sources say it’s believed Davis was the target.  The motive is unclear.  However, there was something stolen from the house.

We’ve learned there was a total of eight people inside at the time.  Five of them were children ranging in age from six to 17 years old.  They are now staying with an aunt.

The twelve-year-old girl is recovering at Children’s Hospital.  We’re told she is in stable condition.

We’re also told Davis left the motorcycle club Afro Dogs shortly before the attack.  Police are investigating whether that may have played a role.

Killed – Taylor Jade Cornett (Hazard, KY)

HAZARD — A 12-year-old girl who was shot in a parking lot at Hazard Community and Technical College died Wednesday, a day after her father and cousin were killed in the same shooting.

The man accused of killing the three bought the gun that he allegedly used just hours earlier and only one day after he and one of the victims had a court hearing in a dispute over custody of their son.

Dalton Lee Stidham, 21, of Perry County is charged with three counts of murder. He allegedly shot all three victims when he met at his ex-girlfriend, Caitlin Paige Cornett, at 6 p.m. Tuesday so he could return their son, Jaydien Miller, 2, after a court-ordered visit.

Also killed were Cornett’s uncle Jackie Doug Cornett, 53, of Happy, and his daughter, Taylor Cornett, a sixth-grader at R.W. Combs Elementary School in Perry County. Jackie and Taylor Cornett had driven Caitlin to pick up her son.

“I snapped, shot three people, I’m sure,” Stidham told police late Tuesday, according to the arrest report.

Hazard police Chief Minor Allen said Wednesday that Stidham had bought a semi-automatic, .40-caliber Glock pistol at 1 p.m. Tuesday. A pistol found at the scene of the shootings matched the description Stidham gave of that gun, according to the arrest report.

Kenny Woods, a Baptist minister who owns H&K Gun & Pawn Shop in Perry County, acknowledged Wednesday that Stidham bought the gun at his shop about five hours before the shootings. The sale was legal, Woods said.

“He cleared a background check without even a delay,” Woods said. “Everything was fine with him.”

Woods said he wouldn’t have sold Stidham a gun if Stidham had been acting strangely.

Killed – Trinity Ross (Kansas City, MO)

female

No criminal charges will be filed in the death of a 4-year-old Kansas City girl who was accidentally shot in the head, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker said Wednesday.

Trinity Ross was shot at a home near 105th Terrace and Monroe Avenue in south Kansas City the morning of Jan. 10. She died days later at an area hospital.

Police said the girl’s father told them he owned the gun and forgot that he left it in the living room. He was not home at the time of the incident. His wife was not aware the gun was left on a chair when she left the room.

According to police, another child found the gun and pulled the trigger. The girl’s stepmother heard the gunshot and ran back into the room, finding the little girl injured.

“Here, the evidence suggested that the suspect normally kept the gun on his person or in a gun safe, and there is no indication the gun would have been readily visible to the children or that they even would have known that a gun was kept at the residence,” Baker said.

Baker said the case was an unfortunate tragedy.

“(It) should serve as a reminder to everyone to practice responsible gun ownership and to always secure their weapons in a safe location,” she said.

Trinity was shot shortly before noon on January 10. Police responding to a call to the girl’s home in the 10500 block of Monroe Avenue found the girl lying on her back on the living room floor with a gunshot wound to her forehead. Two boys, ages 5 and 6, were standing in a corner. The shooting occurred when a 58-year-old woman who was watching the children went outside to get something from her car.

female

Marrero man was arrested and booked with two counts of attempted first-degree murder after he opened fire on a father and his 9-year-old daughter following an argument. No one was injured in the Wednesday afternoon shooting, according to Col. John Fortunato, spokesman for the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office.

The victim, a 32-year-old man, told deputies he was in the parking lot of a service station in the7400 block of Lapalco Boulevard in Marrero just after 1 p.m. when he got into an argument with Paul Delagueronniere, 26. It’s not clear whether the two men were acquaintances or what they were arguing about.

Delagueronniere eventually left. The victim was still in the parking lot a few minutes later when Delagueronniere returned, armed with a pistol, Fortunato said. Delagueronniere fired several times at the victim’s car, narrowly missing the man and his daughter. Seven bullets hit the vehicle, shattering the rear and side vent windows.
