US Police Shot Three Kids, Two In The Head and One In The Face

The mother of three children wounded when police in the US state of Oklahoma fired at a man in a pickup truck who was suspected of robbing a restaurant says two of her kids suffered head wounds and the third was shot in the face.

“My four-year-old daughter was shot in the head, and she has a bullet in her brain, and my five-year-old has a skull fracture,” Olivia Hill told Sherman, Texas, news station KXII-TV .

“My one-year-old baby has gunshot wounds on her face.”

Investigators and a hospital didn’t release the children’s conditions. Hill said her two-year-old child who was also in the truck was not hurt.

Hill and the four children were in the pickup with William Devaughn Smith, 21, when officers approached him and gunfire broke out Friday in Hugo, which is near the Texas state line, Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Brooke Arbeitman said. Smith’s relationship to Hill and the children isn’t clear.

Investigators have not determined what led to the shooting that also wounded Smith, who was treated at a hospital and then taken to a Texas jail on a robbery warrant, Arbeitman said Saturday.

“What happened between the contact with him and when police fired, we’re still trying to put that together,” Arbeitman said.

“The OSBI is still investigating whether he fired at police and whether he was armed.”

She said “it’s going to be a few days before we know anything”, including how many officers were involved in the shooting.

Smith is suspected in an April 11 armed robbery at a Pizza Hut in Hugo, about 241 kilometres southeast of Oklahoma City.

He hasn’t been formally charged, and it wasn’t clear if he has an attorney yet who could speak on his behalf.

A post on the Hugo police Facebook page says a man entered the back entrance of the restaurant, pressed an object to an employee’s back and demanded money. Police said the worker handed over money and the robber left.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
