George Floyd’s 4-year-old Niece Allegedly Shot

 

George Floyd’s four-year-old great-niece, Arianna Delane, was allegedly shot while in her bed at home over the weekend.

 

The incident took place in her family home in South Houston, US, while she was sleeping.

 

 

Arianna was shot in the torso, which left her with a punctured lung and liver and three broken ribs.

 

Two adults and 4 children were present in the house when the incident happened.

 

The girl’s father stated that Arianna was sleeping and was suddenly shot from outside of the house. She got up from bed and said “Daddy, I’ve been hit” – the father then realised that she had blood all over her.

 

 

The police are still investigating the case and the perpetrator is still unknown at the time of writing.

 

The girl was related to George Floyd through her grandmother, LaTonya, who was his sister.
