SEATTLE – A 1-year-old girl who was shot in the head in Kent on Thursday has died in a Seattle hospital.
A statement from Harborview Medical Center said that Malijah Grant died on Saturday night after being removed from life support. She had been in critical condition since being shot, and had been brain dead since arriving at the hospital.
Grant was shot when someone in a black car shot 4-5 times at her parents’ car on Thursday afternoon. That car then sped off, and police have been looking for the shooter since. The girl’s parents were not injured.
Kent Police said on Friday that it is believed that the shooting was not random.
