Little girl killed in drive-by while buying bubble gum with her dad
This little angel was not the intended victim of this drive-by shooting, but her family is mourning her tragic death. Six-year-old Angel Hooper was buying bubble gum with her dad Booker Hooper at a local convenience store in Kansas City on Friday evening when the routine trip took a turn for the worse. An unidentified person in a passing car fired shots and killed little Angel in the 7-Eleven parking lot. She was rushed to a nearby hospital, but died shortly after. Now cops are scanning surveillance videos to catch the murderer.

Her dad must be heartbroken. They went for an innocent jog and walked to the local store for some candy. The last thought he had in mind was that something this tragic was going to happen. No one should have to die in this senseless way. It angers me that a little girl's life has to end in this tragic way because an idiot got a hold of a gun and decided to act like a thug. The freaking tough guy had some crappy aim and now an innocent kid is dead.
The first-grader's mother Charity Guinn spoke to the local news channel and said, "Her name, Angel, it really fit her. She was just so sweet." Her spirit will always be with her family. Her dad will probably live the rest of his life feeling guilty for not being able to protect her. This is just heartbreaking. Angel's life was cut short for no reason at all.
Her family has started a Go Fund Me page to help raise $10,000 to cover extra costs. The page launched on Saturday and has already raised $5,136. Hopefully they get all of the financial and emotional support in the world right now and the cops manage to catch this idiot.
