Gang violence in America knows no boundaries, and it continues to spill blood without consideration for the innocent lives it may take in the midst of its terror.
An 11-year-old was watching television in her bedroom this Thanksgiving in San Antonio, Texas, when shots broke out in the 100 block of Harwood Drive as bullets broke through her windows and walls striking the little girl killing her instantly.

Emergency responders rushed to the scene but there was little they could do, as the girl was already gone.
She suffered from multiple gunshots to the chest and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Five people were inside of the home at the time of the shooting, and it's believed that the girl's brother was the intended target of the gang shooting.

San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said, “The house has had problems in the past. We believe it's gang-related directly to the brother.”
The deceased child's brother was brought in for questioning to attempt to discover which gang was responsible for the heinous holiday killing, but so far he's become uncooperative, according to<a href="http://m.mysanantonio.com/news/local/crime/article/11-year-old-killed-on-Thanksgiving-morning-in-12379751.php#item-39786"> local news My SA</a>.
The San Antonio Police Department is desperate to bring those responsible for this atrocity to justice, and they're urging anyone who may have information related to this murder to contact them at (210) 207-8126.
