    Post Police: Costumed girl mistaken for skunk, shot

    Associated Press
    Posted: 10/21/2012 01:26:35 PM PDT


    FREEDOM, Pa. (AP) -- Police say a costumed 9-year-old girl was accidentally shot outside a western Pennsylvania home during a Halloween party by a relative who thought she was a skunk.
    New Sewickley Township police say the girl was over a hillside and wearing a black costume and a black hat with a white tassel. Chief Ronald Leindecker says a male relative mistook her for a skunk and fired a shotgun, hitting her in the shoulder Saturday night. more at link: http://www.contracostatimes.com/brea...ken-skunk-shot

    Yeah, I've drunk quite a little bit of vodka in Pennsylvania too, but I've never been armed and loaded.

    Which surely must have been the case here.

    Armed and loaded has to be right. I can't imagine mistaking a 9 yr old for a skunk.

    I was confused about this until I heard that the child had run to a hill and was peeking over it. I think her head gear was mistaken for a skunk. She must have been shot in the head, poor thing. http://www.theindychannel.com/news/u...-costume-party

    According to our local news wpxi.com
    I am sorry I have no idea how to copy & paste on this tablet.
    That she had a white feather on her black cap.
    It was a family only party about 30 people.
    They had saw a skunk earlier that night.
    Cousin shot her in the shoulder and abdomin area with a shot gun.

    If not it's a real puzzler then. "Sober man shoots 9-year-old; thought it was skunk."

    If he was sober he's even dumber than I thought. Who uses a gun like that when kids are around? I hope he's been charged with reckless endangerment. His behavior is atrocious.

    One would think that to get a shot at the abdomen she would have had to be standing up, or lying down. As cubby pointed out above, that would be a world record skunk. There's got to be more to this story.

    Those wounds don't sound like a little girl peeking over a hill. JMO

    This article claims he was sober. http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2012/10/22...nk/?hpt=hp_bn1

    Police will determine later Monday whether they will charge the shooter, whom they did not name. Nor did they say how he was related to the girl.

    They did add, however, that the man had not been drinking....

    Was the relative who shot her drinking? Seriously. That'd have to be one big skunk.

    Hope she is feeling better!
