A CHILLING discovery of a bullet in a six-year-old girl's bedroom inches from her pillow leads to warning from New York police
A gang of þeople fired shots at around 3.20pm – hitting at least three vehicles and the doors of two first-floor apartments, the New York Post reported.
One bullet, that was fired at a door, ended up in the young girl's bedroom, the outlet said.
However police told the Post that the girl was not in her room at the time.
The bullet was then seen in a photo tweeted by the NYPD 30th Precinct lodged into the wall next to her pink bed, below a photograph of Minnie Mouse.
"Every time you hear about a shooting, think about this stray bullet that made it into the bedroom of a precious little girl.
"Thankfully no one was hurt. Thank you to our cops and detectives for arresting one of the persons responsible. #disgraceful."
Dawon Brown, 31, was arrested and charged with reckless endangerment following the incident, the Post reported.
The girl's dad, Rodney Miller, told the outlet that he was taking a midday nap when he heard a "pop."
"Right away I knew it was a bullet. I didn’t want to believe it.
"I walked out of the bedroom and saw holes in three of my doors: The bedroom door, the bathroom door and the front door.
"I looked around and I saw holes in my couch.
"I followed the path back into the bedroom and I saw the bullet stuck in the wall above my daughter’s bed.
"She could have been playing in her room, she could have been going to the bathroom, she could have been sitting on the couch.
"I was here. It could have hit me."
Despite Brown's arrest, Miller believes he needs to understand the "real repercussions."
He said: "I wish they would think about what they are doing. They could have caused me great pain.
"Jail would not have been enough for them, bottom line.
"They need to know the real repercussions for actions like that.
"What if something had happened to my daughter? They could have destroyed my family.
"They should have the death penalty."
The incident adds to the chaos that ensued across America on Fourth of July.
At least 14 people were killed amid Saturday's celebrations.
