3 charged with murder of toddler killed in drive-by shooting
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Three people have been charged with capital murder in the shooting death of an Alabama toddler.
Huntsville police Lt. Michael Johnson says in a news release that 26-year-olds Martin Arrendondo Evense, Brittany Nicole Kingston and Dominique Marshawn Russell were arrested Thursday morning.
AL.com reports 3-year-old Olivia Robinson was killed when the home she was sleeping in was shot into Wednesday night. She was taken to a hospital, where she later died. She would’ve turned 4 in May.
The release says the three adults shot into the home because of a disagreement with Olivia’s mother, who was home at the time of the shooting and apparently uninjured.
Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle issued a statement condemning the attack, saying a child is dead because of “an argument among reckless adults.”
