An 8-year-old girl was shot and killed Friday night in Akron, police said.
The shooting took place in the 700 block of Roselle Avenue, where officers responded to calls of several shots fired at about 11:48 p.m. Friday, police said.
The 8-year-old was found with an apparent gunshot wound and was taken to Akron Children’s Hospital, where she later died.
Police said there was a large gathering of teens at the home and it appears the suspects were outside the home before the shots were fired.
No arrests had been made as of early Saturday morning.
The girl’s name will not be released until family is notified. The Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office will conduct an autopsy.
Akron police track murders in the city, excluding killings such as unintentional homicides. This is the 31st murder police are investigating in 2020.
