Nine year old girl shot at Halloween party Saturday night
Police say a costumed 9-year-old girl was accidentally shot outside a western Pennsylvania home during a Halloween party by a relative who thought she was a skunk.
Cops say the girl was over a hillside and wearing a black costume and a black hat with a white tassel.
Police say a male relative mistook her for a skunk and fired a shotgun, hitting her in the shoulder, arm, back and neck Saturday night.
The little girls condition is unknown but hospital officials did say she was responsive when she was flown to a hospital in Pittsburgh.
New Sewickley Township Police Chief Ronald Leindecker says the man hadn't been drinking.
He doesn't know whether charges will be filed.
A decision will be made in a few days.
