Schoolgirl, 11, caught in hail of bullets with mother as she watched TV on the sofa
Where? In Chicago? No. In London, England, where guns are banned. So how come? It happened because some people don't obey gun laws. There's a mention of who those people were in the last sentence below
A schoolgirl was in hospital last night after being shot while watching TV on the sofa with her mother. Davina Adarkwa, 11, was caught in a hail of bullets when gunmen opened fire from as little as three metres away through the window of her home.
The promising student and her mother, Abena Adofo, 48, were both injured as up to 10 rounds were blasted into their living room.
Detectives said it was a miracle no-one was killed as the window was obscured with blinds and the hooded gunmen could not see who was inside.
The shocking attack took place in a tightly-packed road of 12 houses shortly before 10pm on Sunday evening.
Three black men were seen running away after the shooting, which police believe may have been a gang-related attack.
