Skyway Community Reels as 10-Year-Old Girl Dies After Being Struck by Stray Bullet at Creston Point ApartmentsSource: Google Street View

A 10-year-old girl's life was cut tragically short when a stray bullet struck her at the Creston Point Apartments in Skyway. The violent incident unraveled in the early hours of May 23 on Martin Luther King Jr. Way, where the young victim, identified by the King County Medical Examiner's Office, was hit around 2 a.m. She succumbed to her injuries two days later at Harborview Medical Center, as reported by KING5 News.

Details about the shooting are still murky, with no suspects identified by the Sheriff's Office. The bullet that ended the child's life, described as a "stray," adds to a grim tapestry of lead that too often finds its mark in the flesh of the innocent.

The apartment complex, now a site of mourning, was where Mahamud was struck by the fatal shot. The King County Medical Examiner's Office confirmed her death was a direct result of the gunshot wound, according to KOMO News.
