While the family should not have been harboring a murderer, a 7 year old girl dying for the sake of apprehending the murder suspect quickly is unacceptable. Of course an investigation will ensue, and it will find that something about the physical altercation with the women caused "the officer's weapon discharged one round" and hit the girl in the neck. At the minimum this officer should lose his job. For something like this to happen, there is no way that he was controlling his weapon properly. I've heard that in the middle east, our military will surround a house, order it's occupants to come out, and they will usually do so peacefully. The idea that we are safer being apprehended overseas by a military, then we are at home by our own police is frightening to say the least.
