A North Carolina man has been arrested in the shooting of a 7-year-old girl, police said Wednesday. Aaliyah Norris was shot in the head while riding in a car eating ice cream.

The little girl suffered a single gunshot to the head on Wednesday and died in the hospital a day later from her injuries.

Police arrested Shaquille Marshon Francis, 26, of Forest City on Wednesday and charged him with multiple offenses, including assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury with intent to kill.

Arrest records from Rutherford County reportedly show Francis was arrested that day for assault by pointing a gun, before being released, Forest City Police Chief Chris LeRoy said.

Three hours later, he shot the 7-year-old child.

It’s unclear why Francis allegedly shot into the vehicle, but a relative on Facebook suggested he targeted the wrong vehicle.

It’s unknown at the present time.

The family is calling for an end to gun violence, but it’s not the guns. It’s the guns in the hands of criminals. And why was this man out in three hours after he pointed a gun at someone? Why did he still have a gun? Now there is something that needs to be looked at.

Forest City Dunbar Elementary School posted a message on Facebook about the tragic loss of Norris. They wrote:

“The Forest City – Dunbar family is incredibly saddened at the loss of one of our students Aaliyah Norris. Please keep her family and friends in your prayers. If your child is in need of support coping during this difficult time, feel free to reach out to the school.”

The judge who released this scum needs to stand trial alongside the murderer, for the same crime, with no consideration for his being a judge. Everyone makes mistakes, but this bullcrap of releasing bad actors for utterly NO good reason (don’t say to keep him from getting COV-19 in jail – that’s the biggest cop-out of ALL…)…

Does “Black Lives Matter” care about Black toddlers. Apparently Not. It’s why I’m not too impressed with Senator Tim Scott either. He “wants” to solve the “police problem” but says nothing about the “Many” toddlers killed by the black criminal class. He seems to think being “profiled” as a Senator is the worst thing that can happen. “I’m a SENATOR DAMMIT!”. Instead of his current focus maybe he should expand the Opportunity Zones he championed into more community involvement into black culture and where it is failing. The black culture IS different and therein lies most of the hostility. Because it IS different, those in that community “assume” racism when it’s nonexistent. It’s Not racism when some other group views it differently. It was described by Billy Crystal years ago talking about going into a theater with an all black audience when Jaws was playing. He described the animation of the audience in seeing the shark with a woman and someone jumps up and says, “Don’t be takin no dip now, girl”. I doubt you would be seeing that by a white audience. That person would be told to sit down and shut up. That doesn’t mean the white audience thinks they are superior. It’s only a difference in culture. It’s no different than the way some people see Jewish life. During the Purim holiday you can find some who will look in astonishment at the way Jews are dressed. Some also will look bewildered at Jews with payos, or the wearing of a Shtreimel. These are all cultural differences that the public will look at as odd. It’s an unfamiliar culture to them. If Jews can be happy about themselves because they Are different, then so should the black community. Just don’t look at cultural differences as a sign of some inherent bigotry. How a person presents themselves to other cultures defines how they will be treated. As is taught in Tradition, “Don’t do to others what you don’t want done to you”.
