Rahquel Carr, 4-Year-Old Girl, Shot To Death In Car In Northwest Miami-Dade
MIAMI, FL -- A little girl has died after being shot Saturday night in front of other children in a car in Northwest Miami-Dade.
Four-year-old Rahquel Carr suffered a gunshot wound to her upper body, according to Miami-Dade Police, and was pronounced dead at Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital.
Detectives are still investigating to determine who shot the gun inside the white Mercedes-Benz, which the Miami Herald reports was parked in the girl's grandparents' driveway in the 12000 block of Northwest 20th Avenue.
"There's a lot of speculation right now as to who had that firearm at the time, but we're not in the business of speculating, we're in the business of facts," Rutland said, noting that an adult was nearby and several children were inside the car when the shooting happened around 6 p.m. Saturday evening.
“To know that a kid has access to a gun and to be able to have that kind of tragedy happen right in front of your home it’s sad,” neighbor Kendrick Williams told CBS. “Our prayers are with the family and everybody else involved in this situation. The sad thing is someone’s going to have to get in trouble for this for being irresponsible with the unsecured weapon.”
