The 4-year-old niece of George Floyd was identified by media outlets as a New Year’s Day gunshot victim in Texas.
The shooting occurred around 2:55 a.m. Saturday when at least one person fired several shots into an apartment on Yellowstone Boulevard in Houston, police said. Four adults and two children were inside the apartment and one of the kids, a 4-year-old girl, was struck in the torso.
The girl, who KPRC reported is George Floyd’s niece, was taken by a private vehicle to a hospital and was listed in stable condition as of Tuesday, Jan. 4. Police do not have a description of the suspect or a motive.
Family members told KTRK the girl’s name is Arianna, and she was sleeping at the time of the shooting. Her father told the outlet she suffered “a punctured lung and liver and three broken ribs.”
