Via 11 Alive:
Atlanta Police confirmed that there were 11 shooting incidents during the holiday weekend where 31 people were injured. Out of those victims, five of them died. One of those deaths included 8-year-old Secoriea Turner.
APD said the car that the girl was in with her mother and an adult friend had tried to enter a parking lot on Pryor Road when they were confronted by a group of armed people who had blocked the entrance, police said.
During the confrontation, someone in the group opened fire at the car, hitting it multiple times and hitting Secoreia. The driver immediately drove to Atlanta Medical Center for help for the little girl, but she passed away at the hospital.
