Brooklyn girl is hit by stray bullet
A Brooklyn schoolgirl playing at home was hit by a stray bullet fired nearly two blocks away in a street slaying Friday, police said.
The terrified Public School 284 third-grader was rushed to Brookdale Hospital, where doctors said she was in stable condition and expected to recover fully.
As Briana was rushed to the hospital, Robert Rajid Morgan, 27, lay facedown on a bloody sidewalk at the corner of Christopher and Belmont Aves. Morgan was walking with his brother shortly before 2 p.m. when a gunman came up from behind and started blasting.
Morgan's sister, Ralana Whitfield, 30, said her brother died because of a crime he committed six years ago.
She said he shot a Bloods gang member on Father's Day 2002 in a dispute over a motorbike the gang member had stolen.
"My brother did six years for the shooting and he just came home last week," she said. "I think the guy he shot found out, and came and shot him."
