11-Year-Old Idaho Girl Shot And Killed
Being a father to four beautiful girls, this tragedy shakes me to the core. I sometimes try to put myself into the shoes of those going through something so devastating but there's no way I can. I imagine myself completely losing it. I couldn't go to work... or church... or out anywhere. I don't know how I'd act towards others or even myself.
I wish I could just put my arms around this little girl's family and give them a hug. My heart truly aches for them and for everyone that knew this beautiful soul.
We have very little information on this but I'll tell you what I know. According to KTVB, the Bear Lake County Sheriff's office made a statement yesterday saying that someone called in about a child being shot near Highway 30 in the Paris, Idaho area. When authorities arrived at the scene the little girl was immediately pronounced dead from a single gunshot wound.
We do know that the girl was only 11-years-old but authorities have not released her identity. Notifying everyone close to her properly is a priority for law enforcement. The only other thing we know is that the young girl was from Blackfoot, Idaho. Please keep this family in your thoughts today.
