Philadelphia drug kingpin Kaboni Savage once said he dreamed of killing the children of informants, and was recently charged in the 2004 arson that wiped out a rival's family. Now, Savage's own 9-year-old daughter is dead, the apparent victim of an unrelated turf war in south-central Pennsylvania.

York police say Ciara Savage of Lancaster was fatally shot on Mother's Day when she got caught in a dispute between two local gangs. Detective Jeff Spence says there's no apparent connection to her father.

Spence says two York teens are in custody and a third is being sought in the girl's death.

Kaboni Savage is serving a 30-year-term for drug trafficking and witness intimidation in a high-security prison in Colorado.
