She was in her own home when the bullet pierced her bedroom wall.



In the Trejo shooting, authorities say a group of men was walking near Walnut and Elmer when multiple shots rang out.

One of the bullets went through the rear of Trejo's home and into her bedroom. The girl was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

No arrests have been made in either case.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Cumberland County Prosecutor's Office.
