A 9-year-old girl struck in the head by a stray bullet as she jumped on a trampoline in North Minneapolis has died from her injuries.
Police and the family of Trinity Ottoson-Smith have confirmed her death on Thursday, which came after she was shot while playing with friends on Saturday, May 15.
"Our baby Trinity passed today," her father, Raishawn Smith, posted on Facebook. "God got her now."
She is the second child to have died out of three who have been shot by stray bullets in Minneapolis this month. Last week, Aniya Allen, 6, died from injuries sustained when she was shot while in her mother's car as they returned from a McDonald's in North Minneapolis.
A third child, Ladavionne Garrett Jr., 10, was shot while sitting in his family's car on April 30, and was critically injured.
Trinity's mother, Nicole Ottoson, on a GoFundMe page described her daughter as a "beautiful, compassionate, kind and loving 9 year old."
"She did not deserve this. She has plans to change the world," she said. "She wants to be a teacher. She loves making Tik Toks, doing art, doing makeup, playing Roblox with her friends, playing with her siblings, going on adventures, riding her bike, playing soft ball and basketball and doing gymnastics.
"She has been my shadow. Everyone who knows Trinity loves her."
No arrests have yet been made in either the shooting of Trinity, Aniya, or Ladavionne, with members of the North Minneapolis community calling for peace and imploring those responsible to come forward.
A $30,000 reward has been made available for information leading to those responsible for the three child shootings.
It comes amid a wider surge of gun crime in Minneapolis that has escalated in the past month, with this past weekend also seeing a mass shooting at the Monarch nightclub that left two dead and eight injured.
The fundraising campaign for Trinity Ottoson-Smith has raised almost $38,000. It can be found here.
