The shooting happened around 10:15 p.m. The young girl, identified as Saniyah Pugh, was the only one who was hit by the gunfire, police officers said.

She lived in her grandmother’s house on the east side of town. According to police, two adults and five children were in the home at the time of the shooting.

“Saniyah was a very beautiful, intelligent … she was a very talented little girl,” said the girl’s grandmother, Lawanda Melton.

“My kids and grandkids are scarred by it… they’re totally scarred by it because they all had to see it and experience it. Something I wouldn’t even want my worst enemy to experience.”

The girl attended middle school and was a gymnast and cheerleader. According to FOX2, she would have turned 12 at the end of June.

“When you have an 11-year-old girl in a house with her grandmother and five other children who are 7 years old, dancing happily around the house and a bullet goes through and kills her — it hits you very hard,” said the Detroit Mayor, mike duggan

Detroit Police Commissioner James White echoed this sentiment, telling reporters that the girl “was murdered while she was staying at her grandmother’s in our community for a sleepover.”

“Make TikTok videos and be laughing one minute and getting shot in the back… the next.”

White blamed “irresponsible gun ownership” and “irresponsible use of a gun” for the crime. He also said the shots were all fired at the back of the house.

“It’s at epidemic proportions in our country and in our city right now.

“We don’t have much, except for another kid from our town to be shot, this fatal one, obviously for some adult nonsense she has nothing to do with.

“We have a wide-open investigation, but we’re going to work this case and we’re going to have something. Officers and investigators will do what they are good at.”

A GoFundMe has been started to help with the girl’s funeral expenses.
