An eight-year-old female student at Portage Path Community Learning Center, Mikayla Pickett was reportedly shot dead during a birthday party for a teenager last week Friday, August 14, in Akron.
However, it was reported that the shooting took place in the 700 blocks of Roselle Avenue near Manchester Road, UK.
Police officers responded to reports of gunfire at the residence at 11.48 pm Friday and found the girl police with an apparent gunshot wound.
Afterward, she was then rushed to Akron Children’s Hospital, where she was confirmed dead.
A man named Willie Walker told the newsmen that he was hosting an outdoor birthday party for his 15-year-old grandson in his backyard when the shooting started.
“All hell broke out,” he said. “I don’t know what the hell happened.”
Walker said three or four people showed up at the property and started shooting at the partygoers.
“I don’t know know how many shells they took,” he said, referencing police who found multiple bullet casings at the scene.
A lot of them.”
