This girl was shot in the chest after her idiot dad paintballed the wrong guy
Oakland police believe the genuine gunmen had been targets of a paintball prank by her father and his friends.
OAKLAND — Tyanni Miller, 4, is recovering after being shot in the chest as a result of her idiot father's decision to shoot up East Oakland with a paintball gun.
The 4-year-old girl sat in the back seat of a Volvo while her father, Julius Miller, and friends targeted cars and people along International Boulevard. But apparently, not everyone in Oakland thinks random paintballing is all fun and games.
Police believe the genuine gunmen had been targets in the father and friends' paintball prank. The gunmen eventually caught up with the paintball crew and fired several shots at their Volvo.
One of the bullets struck Tyanni in the chest—another grazed the driver who then lost control of the vehicle and crashed near the 1000 block of 81st Avenue.
Police arrested the father and the driver of the vehicle, Marcell Powell, and Miller when they showed up at the hospital to check on little Tyanni, who authorities say was in stable condition on Wednesday. Police are still searching for the gunmen.
Shooting up East Oakland with a paintball gun is dumb—but even worse is bringing along your 4-year-old daughter. FAMILY HANDOUT
