A 9-year-old girl was killed on Monday after a drive-by shooting into a Silverton home. Three suspects are now in custody.
The shooting is believed to be in retaliation for some sort of drug-related crime. Police say 30 rounds were fired into the home, but that the man the suspects were allegedly looking for was not inside.
9-year-old Da’Myiah Barton-Pickens was fatally struck inside the house.
