◼️ THE LATEST INCIDENT
A six-year-old girl was shot in the face and her parents wounded Tuesday night by an enraged neighbor who fired at them after a basketball rolled into his yard in a small North Carolina town.
Kinsley White still has the bullet lodged in her cheek. Her father is in critical condition after being shot in the back of the head when he tried to protect her.
A bunch of kids were playing basketball when the ball bounced into the gunman’s yard, said neighbors in the Gaston County community.
The crazed shooter, Robert Singletary, a convicted felon, ran down the street firing his gun and then came back and began shooting at the family — Kinsley and her mother Ashley Hilderbrand and father William White. He kept firing until he was out of bullets.
The ‘armed and dangerous’ lunatic was still on the loose, and is being hunted on four counts of first-degree attempted murder, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon.

NEW YORK SHOOTING UPDATE: Kaylin Gillis, 25, was in a car with her boyfriend, Blake Walsh, 19, and two others Saturday night looking for a friend’s house in an isolated area of Hebron, 57 miles north of Albany at the Vermont border.
“We thought we were at the right address,” Blake said in an interview afterwards. “We didn’t have any cell service to figure it out.”
No one in the car got out or tried to enter the house.
“As soon as we figured it out that we were at the wrong location, we started to leave, and that’s when everything happened.”
As the young man turned his Ford Explorer around to leave, the owner of the property came out onto his patio and fired two shots at the vehicle.
“My friend said, ‘They’re shooting — go!’,” Blake said. “I tried to step on the gas as fast as I could, and that’s when the fatal shot came through.”
One of the bullets hit Kaylin in the neck.
With no cell phone reception in the area, Blake drove five miles looking for a place to call for help.
When first responders finally got to the car, Kaylin was dead.
“She was an innocent young girl who was out with friends looking for another friend’s house,” said Washington County Sheriff Jeffrey Murphy.
“My beautiful baby didn’t deserve this,” her mother Angelique Gillis wrote on social media. “She had so much to live for and so many dreams. She was the light of our lives.”
‘SHORT FUSE’ SHOOTER PLEADS NOT GUILTY
When cops arrived at the house, the shooter, Kevin Monahan, 65, refused to come out and a standoff ensued for an hour. A heavily armed special police squad was called in and Monahan was finally arrested. He was charged with second-degree murder.
RANG THE WRONG DOORBELL
Sixteen-year-old Ralph Yari was shot twice in the head by a white homeowner when he went to pick up his younger brothers.
The boy was looking for a house at N.E. 115th Terrace, but went to N.E. 115th Street by mistake. Who the hell names the streets in Kansas City?! N.E. 115th Terrace… Street… Easy enough to mix up!
When the first shot felled the young man, the homeowner, Andrew Lester, 84, shot him again. The critically wounded boy managed to get away and went to several houses before someone would call police.
The old man was charged with first-degree assault and released on bail.
The Kansas City shooting will be prosecuted as a racial hate crime.
