Kiana Rae O'Neil

A vigil will be held Friday night (12/27/13) for a 14-year-old girl who was mistaken for a burglar and shot and killed by her stepfather.

The shooting happened on Monday, December 23, 2013 just before 6 a.m.

Kiana Rae O’Neil lived in Alamosa before moving to Colorado Springs. Friday night’s vigil is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Our Lady of the Valley Catholic Church in La Jara, which is about 15 miles south of Alamosa.

Kiana attended Vista Ridge High School in District 49. Classmates gathered at her home on Ascendant Drive the day after she died to remember her.

A KRDO NewsChannel 13 crew reached out to family and friends at the home but they declined to comment.

Fort Carson identified the stepfather as 2nd Lt. Daniel Meade, a member of the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division.
