Gastonia. They went for the ball, they got shot

The bullets hit both the girl and both of her parents, according to the local Queen City News website. The 6-year-old girl, identified as Kinsley White, had minor injuries and was released from hospital within hours of the incident. Her mother, Ashley Hilderbrand, has also returned home. The child’s father, William White, was the most seriously injured and is still hospitalized, police said in a statement.

Members of the attacked family explained to Queen City News that Singletary had gone mad after their ball had landed in his backyard. He came out with a gun and started shooting. I hope my dad is okay,” Kinsley, 6, said. In an interview with local television station WSOC-TV, she turned to the attacker. – Why did you shoot me and my dad? she asked. The girl’s mother, also quoted by WSOC-TV, explained that the 24-year-old had threatened her and her family before the shots were fired. “He looked at my daughter and husband and said, ‘I’m going to kill you,'” Hilderbrand said.

This is another shot in recent days of a person – and in this case people – who entered someone else’s property without bad intentions. Last week in Kansas City, USA, a 16-year-old wanted to pick up his two brothers from a friend’s house, but got the addresses wrong. After he knocked on another house, he was shot twice by his tenant.
