A GIRL, 6, has died after she and three others suffered gunshot wounds after being shot during a toddler's birthday party.

The outlet also reports MPD investigators spent 12 hours at the scene looking for evidence.

Those who knew Chassidy told Local 10 News reporter Terrell Forney that she was bubbly and always the life of the party.

Her family affectionately dubbed her the “Tik Tok princess” because of her fondness for making videos on the social media platform.

Santonio Carter saidd: “We gotta go through real pain, man.

People don’t know what we gotta go through, man. Stop it! Just stop it.”

Carter’s own son, King Carter, was also just 6 years old when the boy was killed by a stray bullet while playing outside nearly five years ago.

The father turned community activist sympathizes with the girl’s family, whom he considers friends.

“It’s nothing gangster about killing a kid,” he said.

“If you saw something, say something. It’s nothing gangster.”
