At Thursday morning's media briefing, Wichita Police Norman Williams discussed several shootings in a little over a decade where a child was shot. He called those crimes and Thursday's early morning shooting involving a four year old, “unacceptable.”

“We've had several of those situations where children have been shot in their homes because somebody doesn't have the courage to face somebody face to face and rather do it at night. To me, that's unacceptable,” Chief Williams said.

In 2001, 16-month-old Lexus Mathis was shot and killed inside her home on north Cleveland during a drive-by.

Four years later, in 2005, 12-year-old Jimmy Warner was playing in his yard on north Fountain when he was shot in the back during a drive-by. He survived.

In 2010, Migueal Andrade was killed when two men fired dozens of shots through the front of his house on north Jackson.

And just last September, 8-year-old Kimbra Moore was hit by a stray bullet and killed while she slept in her home near 31st and Broadway.
