A tragic incident occurred at the Mall of Victor Valley in Victorville, California, when a 9-year-old girl was accidentally shot in the arm while waiting in line to meet the Easter Bunny, Your Content has learned.

The chaos ensued after the store owner of Sole Addicts, Marqel Cockrell, opened fire on two alleged shoplifters who were attempting to flee the business.

Despite Cockrell’s intentions to stop the robbers, his gunfire missed its mark and struck the innocent child instead.

The young girl, identified as Ava, sustained an injury but is expected to recover. Her family expressed their relief that her condition is not life-threatening.
