Gunshots Miss 4-Year-Old Girl by Inches in Horrifying Surveillance Video
The child was watching television in her grandfather's barbershop when the shots rang out, police said.
A 4-year-old girl narrowly avoided being shot as two rounds blasted through the Arizona storefront of her grandfather’s barbershop, where she was watching television.
Surveillance video shows the child happily dancing inside the business before settling into a padded chair. Moments later, two bullets rip into the glass behind her, missing her by inches.
Footage shows the terrified child jumping up and running away.
Police arrested two men Tuesday in a Phoenix suburb and charged them with aggravated assault and endangerment.
Michael David Hart, 23, and Rafael Santos, 21, had gone to a tattoo parlor next door to the barbershop, but were refused service because Hart appeared to be drunk, police said.
The two argued with the shop’s owner and the men returned to their car, where Hart picked up a handgun and fired three rounds as they drove away, according to a statement from the Chandler Police Department.
Both are being held at the Maricopa County Jail, authorities said. They have not entered pleas.
The child suffered cuts from the shattering glass.
