A 7-year-old girl was shot and killed when an officer's gun went off during a struggle with a woman in a house where Detroit police were searching for a suspect in the slaying of a teenager, MyFoxDetroit.com reported.
Assistant Chief Ralph Godbee said at a news conference Sunday that Aiyana Jones was hit in the neck by a single bullet and died at a hospital.
The lead officer encountered a 46-year-old woman immediately inside the front room of the house and "some level of physical contact ensued

So the police get the warrant to go into a house where a murderer is believed to be hiding(Good!) Police set off single flashbang(overkill, but necessary in some eyes) Here is where it gets weird, police enter "physical contact" with a woman, with child present, and a round goes off?"

Imagine how the officer feels about the death of the child.
It's not like he pointed the trigger to shoot the child.
I think this is one of those situations where unless you were there, the absolute truth will never be known.
thought ATS would like to see more police brutality

Your assuming his finger pulled the trigger. What if mom, while fighting got HER finger in the trigger guard and discharged the firearm? As I said she should of never been able to get that close, but it happened, now its only right to hope the truth and facts come out before judging....because a dead little girl deserves that.
