Several innocent children became victims of gun violence following a number of shootings that occurred around the country during July 4th weekend. Radio host Rickey Smiley shared that his daughter happened to be one of the victims after a shooting that took place in Houston. He posted to Instagram Monday to share, “My youngest daughter @ryn.smiley was shot this past weekend while trying to get food. Smiley also shared another post about his daughter Aaryn, letting viewers know that she’s “Still in surgery…. thanks for your prayers or our daughter @ryn.smiley!! I really appreciate the support!” During the interview, Smiley said she is expected to be ok. However, he went on to explain the sad reality for the other victims. An 8-year-old died after she was shot during a night of violence across metro Atlanta. A 14-year-old boy was among four victims killed in a shooting late Saturday night in Englewood, California. An 11-year-old boy was also shot and killed in Southeast D.C. while watching fireworks on July 4th and sadly, several other children also died during the weekend due to gun violence.
