This was after a gunman opened fire on her home in Huston, US, a heinous act that took place on Saturday, January 1.

According to New York Post, the little one named Arianna was shot in her torso, with the bullet puncturing her lung and liver and breaking three of her ribs. She was among four adults and two kids inside the apartment when shots were fired at 3am.

In a statement, the police said they could not identify if there were either one or multiple shooters, and they have no suspect as it stands. They are also unaware of any motive to attack the family while sleeping.

Arianna has been very active in the George Floyd protests that demanded justice for her uncle. Many hope that she can also get justice and those behind the act can be brought to book.

The punishment fell short of the 30 years that the prosecutor had requested, and with good behaviour, Chauvin could be paroled after serving two-thirds of his sentence, or about 15 years.

Judge Peter Cahill went beyond the 12 and half years prescribed under the Minnesota guidelines citing abuse of a position of trust and authority and Floyd's particular cruelty.
