CAMDEN, N.J. – A $50,000 reward is being offered in the shooting death of an 8-year-old girl who was caught in the crossfire in one of America’s most dangerous cities.
Gabrielle “Gabby” Hill Carter was hit in the head by a stray bullet while across the street from her Camden, New Jersey, home Wednesday.
Authorities say gunfire broke out when several men opened fire on an intended target. The men then jumped into a car and fled.
Police announced that the founders of CSMI, LLC, which manages Camden Community Charter School, are paying for Gabby’s funeral expenses. Gabby was about to enter third grade at that charter school.
Surveillance video is still being reviewed. Several entities contributed to the reward that’s for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Gabby’s killer.
