Eleven-year-old girl shot while sleeping on sofa

DETROIT, MI – An 11-year-old girl is facing a tragic end after being a victim of a drive-by shooting in Detroit. The young girl, Lamara Glenn, was caught in the crossfire while sleeping on her aunt’s sofa on a fateful Tuesday night. Her mother, Brandy Crenshaw, painfully shared the news that her little girl would soon be taken off life support.

In an emotional conversation with reporters on Friday, Crenshaw exclaimed how her only child was taken away. She expressed her disbelief and grief over having to contemplate losing her beloved daughter in such an unforeseen manner.

In the incident, the residence was subjected to around 23 bullets, one of which tragically hit the innocent Lamara in the head while she slept, according to Assistant Chief of the Detroit Police Department, Charles Fitzgerald in his Facebook post on Tuesday. Following the critical injury, she was immediately rushed to the hospital.

Reports indicate that soon after the incident, four prime suspects were apprehended. The number increased to five with an arrest on Thursday. The alleged culprits, believed to be part of a local car theft ring, are also reportedly linked to another fatal shooting of a 17-year-old earlier this month. The names of the suspects haven’t been released by the police yet.

The sorrowful situation continues as doctors at Detroit’s Children’s Hospital declare there’s little to nothing they can do to save Lamara’s life, spelling out the heartbreaking reality. To manage the mounting expenses associated with the shooting, Crenshaw has initiated a GoFundMe account.
