Girl dies after her 4-year-old brother accidentally shot her in the head

A 6-year-old Georgia girl has died after her 4-year-old brother accidentally shot her in the head in a car outside their home.

The girl, identified as Millie Drew Kelly was shot Monday evening at their subdivision about a 40-minute drive northwest of downtown Atlanta, the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office said. The siblings were in a car in their driveway, preparing to go to the boy’s baseball game, when the vehicle failed to start.

The mother exited to try to find out what was wrong with the car, authorities said. The boy took a gun from the car’s console and accidentally fired it while his mother was outside, striking his sister in the head, the sheriff’s office said. Emergency responders were called and took her to an Atlanta-area hospital.

Two days later, detectives learned the girl had died, the sheriff’s office said. Detectives determined that no charges will be filed. “It’s just a really sad situation,” sheriff’s Sgt. Ashley Henson said Saturday morning. “Just based on all the evidence and the entire situation, we felt like charges were not warranted in this particular case.”

Sheriff Gary Gulledge said that his officers’ “hearts break for this family, and we hope God puts his healing hands around them during this difficult time.” “We want to remind everyone to keep their firearms unloaded and secured in an area away from children to ensure that this never happens again,” Gulledge said in a news release.

Royal family SHOCKED as ‘disappointed’ Prince wanted a girl

Shock claims have emerged suggesting Prince Charles was far from happy when Prince Harry was born.

According to Royal writer Andrew Morton, the late Princess Diana told him that the Prince of Wales was rather ‘disappointed’ because he was hoping the couple would welcome a baby girl after William.

In his book, Diana: Her True Story, Mr Morton claims that Diana told him:“I knew Harry was going to be a boy because I saw on the scan.

“Charles always wanted a girl. He wanted two children, and he wanted a girl. I knew Harry was a boy, and I didn’t tell him.

“His first comment was: ‘Oh God, it’s a boy,’

“The second comment: ‘And he’s even got red hair’.”

She continued to discuss in detail how Charles later went on to express his disappointment again at Harry’s christening.

He told Diana’s mother: “‘We were so disappointed – we thought it would be a girl’.

“Mummy snapped his head off, saying: ‘You should realise how lucky you are to have a child that’s normal’.”

Awad Mohamed Ahmed Ibn Auf, the military chief who led the action that ousted long-serving Omar al-Bashir has resigned his position.

The move comes barely 48-hours after the military high command announced taking power from Bashir. Reports indicate that the capital, Khartoum, erupted with the resignation.

Awad had only in February this year been named defense minister in what is now Bashir’s last cabinet reshuffle. He was due to lead the two-year transitional council.

Lieutenant General Abdel-Fatah al-Burhan Abdel-Rahman as his replacement. The new leader has previously served as ousted Bashir’s Chief of Staff of the Ground Forces.

Meanwhile, the Turkish news agency, Anadolu, is reporting that the military council has sought the support of Arab ambassadors amid foreign pressures due to the crisis.

On Bashir’s status, it is now clear that he is under arrest but the military heirachy has dismissed categorically any move to extradite him to face international criminal charges at The Hague.

Nigerians React To Alleged Wrongful Execution Of Kudirat Afolabi In Saudi Arabia… Call Out Onyeama and Abike Dabiri

Published

Nigerians have taken to various social media platforms to call out the minister of foreign affairs and SSA on foreign affairs concerning the wrongful execution of a Nigerian lady, Kudirat Afolabi. A Twitter user “@Mrpenfold_ ” made a thread highlighting the ignorance of the Foreign affairs ministry and all involved.

The execution of Kudirat Adesola Afolabi is solely on The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Geoffrey Onyeama and The SSA to PMB on Foreign Affairs & Diaspora, Ms Abike Dabiri. That was the execution of an innocent person in a foreign land that need not have happened.

The KSA authorities were only concerned with the fact that prohibited drugs were found in her luggage, and she was sentenced based on that. However, the Nigerian State had determined that the real perpetrators were the members of the drug syndicate at the Kano Airport, infact, the real criminals had been arrested and prosecuted in Nigeria, and Kudirat’s innocence established in Nigeria. The Nigerian Consul in KSA, was aware of this fact, and had written TWICE to the Minister of Foreign Affairs over this, first time in December 2018.

Second time in February 2019, the Consul is reported to have said there was no response to his letters. The impending execution was widely reported in the media before Adeshola was executed 2 weeks ago. That was one needless death, of an innocent, that shouldn’t have happened

Imagine being on Death row and facing death every day with the knowledge that you are innocent, the misery, the torture of facing certain death with the full knowledge that you are innocent, that is totally totally inhumane, maybe if our high govt officials spend more time on actually Ministering to Foreign affairs and Assisting Nigerians in Diaspora instead of being quick to air opinions in the media (Social, Print and Electronic) there might be less of such deaths.

Kudirat Adeshola Afolabi, your country failed you, your government failed you, Inna Lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un Rest in peace and may your soul find rest and succor with your maker.
