PA Man who Shot Girl in Skunk Costume About to go to Trial

Local news reports - here's our original post.
A Pennsylvania man who apparently shot a young relative after mistaking her costume for a skunk has been ordered to stand trial on charges of assault and reckless endangerment. 

Police said the girl was in a black costume with a white feather or tassel on her hat during a Halloween party at a New Sewickley home on Oct. 20. The Beaver County Times reported investigators said the girl was lying face down and motionless during a game of hide-and-seek when she was shot. 

Grant's attorney called the shooting a "tragic accident." He said he'll ask to have the charges dismissed.
What do you predict, guilty to a lesser charge and keep the guns? That's my bet.

  1. A while ago, you were whining about how there weren't any charges. Can't you let the justice system run its course?
