This is sad, I'll give anyone that concession. However, I call BS on this story! There aren't any guns in NY! How could this possibly happen?

/sarc

Truthfully though, this is tragic, esp. considering the randomness of the act.

"I know in my heart that that was my gem," her dad, Cordell Baker, told WNBC-TV. "She was better than diamonds, better than pearls. She was something God sent me."

Why, they hitchhike in from eeeeevil red states such as Texas and Wyoming to do their dirty work in innocent, unsuspecting blue states. I'm surprised you didn't know that!

I was going to quote that too, very lovely really. But does her dad realize that she was something some bum who was at his house took away? If the shot was fired from the backyard, it should not be too hard to track down the murderer.

I've got family in Suffolk County, there were two little gals killed in Chicago similarly. All together now: BUSH'S FAULT! (except it is not).

New York needs to build a fence to keep out guns. Oh, that's right, fences sell guns in New York.

Prayers sent for the family of the girl. Hope the perp is punished for his crime, at least.

People in the neighborhood said they believe the shooters may be gang members who were thrown out of the house.

As a kid, I always thought Paladin's first name was Wire.

Thought it was a real strange name...

I had a beautiful, young cousin who was murdered at a party in NY about 25 years ago. It was one of the saddest thing we had to go through. She went there because there was a boy she liked. The story was that one of the kids found a gun behind a piece of furniture and started playing around with it, not knowing it was loaded. One shot, hit my cousin. That was it.
