Jenny Sims, the assistant chief constable, stated: “This is a genuinely heartbreaking event in which a young, innocent girl was tragically shot and killed.

“Our condolences and thoughts are with her family and friends during this difficult time. No parent should ever have to endure the tragic loss of a child under these conditions.

“This offense is terrible, and our communities must come forward and identify the perpetrators.

“This cowardly criminal does not belong on the streets, and I urge anyone with information to come forward so we can put the perpetrator behind bars, where they belong.

“We are conducting several urgent investigations and are requesting dashcam, CCTV, or mobile phone evidence from anyone who lives, works, or was in the Kingsheath Avenue area last night.”
