TN - Kawanda Wainwright, 18, dead, 2 hurt in Memphis shooting, 4 July 2009
Homicide detectives are out in full force after an especially bloody weekend in Memphis.
Since Saturday six people have been killed, bringing the number of homicides to 69.
The most disturbing case may be a 6-year-old little girl shot while in the hands of her mother during an argument over a dog.
It happened early Saturday morning, near Mosby and Alabama. Police say an argument broke out between a man and his 35-year-old estranged wife, over a pitbull.
"They were fighting over whose pitbull was bigger," said Deputy Chief Joe Scott of the Memphis Police Dept.
"He began firing, hit all three," he said.
The gunman's estranged wife and her 6-year-old daughter were wounded. Another female standing nearby was shot and killed. She's been identified as 18-year-old Kwanda Wainwright.
She died on the steps of the Alabama Court Apartments.
