San Juan — Police say unidentified people with guns have shot at a vehicle headed to a church service in Puerto Rico and killed a 3-year-old girl inside.
Police spokeswoman Maria del Pilar Bon says Nayelis Sofia Manso died shortly after being taken by paramedics to a hospital following the Saturday night attack. She received three wounds — two of them in her head — as she traveled in the vehicle with her mother and step-father in Parcelas Vieques about 40 km east of San Juan.
