A 9-year-old girl has died in Minneapolis after she was shot while playing on a trampoline at a friend’s birthday party, police said.
Trinity Ottoson-Smith had been jumping with friends on the trampoline when someone fired from a car at the home in Brooklyn Center, striking her in the head on May 15, news station WCCO reported.
“She did not deserve this,” Nicole Ottoson, Trinity’s mother, said on a GoFundMe page.
Trinity was brought to North Memorial Health Hospital in Robbinsdale, where she died on Thursday afternoon, police said.
“For the last 12 days, that child has fought for her life. And [Thursday], that fight ended,” police spokesman, John Elder, told news station KTSP.
Her father, Raishawn Smith, also confirmed her death.
“Our baby Trinity passed today,” he wrote on Facebook on Thursday. “God got her now.”
