15-Year Old Girl Shot by Stray Bullets on Her Way From Church

A 15-year-old girl was the victim of a drive-by shooting as she and her family drove home from church in Orange County, California.

The girl was shot Sunday in Pine Hills as she sat in the back seat parent’s minivan. It was her mother’s birthday.

The family was driving west in the North Lane at about 6:30 p.m. on their way back from church. The girl’s father was driving and hears gunshots coming from two nearby vehicles that sped by the van. He tried to turn off onto a side street, but when he was finally able to, he saw that his daughter had already been shot.

A charcoal-colored Chevy Equinox SUV and a tan sedan were believed to be the vehicles the shooters were riding in.  The community is searching for answers, as young people are losing their lives to senseless violence all over the nation.

The girl was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center then transferred to Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children. Her name has not been released and her condition was not available Sunday night.  Police are still searching for the suspects and her family wants to understand what happened.

“It’s a horrible tragedy,” Orange County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Jane Watrel said.

She said it appeared that the occupants had been shooting at each other and the van was simply “in the wrong place at the wrong time.” Officers have interviewed witnesses and are searching for the two vehicles involved.

  3. Yes I was about to say the same thing this happened in Orlando Florida in Orange county.. The Pine hills area is known for high crime and crazy things happening.. I get my hair done in that area then get the h**l out…

  4. I’m the Auto adjuster that looked at the vehicle and I spoke to the dad. Strong man. I’m trying to get a donation going to get them a different vehicle because they can’t afford one and I think its too much heartache to get back into the vehicle your daughter was shot in. I have a 3 year old daughter and I don’t want to imagine what he’s. Going through, but when I did, it brought me to tears. If anyone is willing to donate, please email me @ bsanx@Allstate.com. my prayers are with the family.

  5. probably some illegal ailiens did this.
