Teen Arrested in Connection with Shooting 5-Year-Old Girl

Police arrested a 16-year-old kid on suspicion of shooting a 5-year-old girl as she walked home from school with her father in the Bayview last month.

On October 12, police were tipped off to suspicious activity in the Kirkwood and Mendell area in the Bayview which is a known spot for gang activity and gun arrests. When police approached, one of the individuals took one look at the cops and took off running along with others in the group. As he fled, he was trying to remove a gun from his waistband, police said. He was arrested and booked on gun charges.

Among the fleeing group of teens, police recognized the suspect they were looking for in connection with the Sept. 20 shooting of the young girl, who was only injured in the crossfire.
