Girl, 9, wounded by gunfire on way to Girl Scouts meeting

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A 9-year-old Indianapolis girl who was shot in the leg as she was heading off to her weekly Girl Scouts meeting to pick up cookies the third-grader planned to sell door-to-door is still racking up sales thanks to an online cookie drive.

Sinai Miller was standing outside her family’s apartment Tuesday eager to get to its nearby clubhouse to pick up cookies at her troop’s weekly meeting when gunshots rang out.

Her mother raced outside and found blood gushing from Sinai’s left calf.

The girl was released from a hospital that night, but Shanita Miller says her daughter is traumatized.

Girls Scouts of Central Indiana has responded by launching an online cookie drive called “Cookies for Sinai” to raise money to send Sinai and her troop on a trip.
