PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) _ The father of a 12-year-old girl shot to death during a party in Providence says she was an energetic child who liked acting and singing and would have started middle school in the fall.
The father told WJAR-TV that his daughter, Aynis Vargas, died in Saturday night's shooting on Hartford Avenue after someone opened fire at a graduation party. Three women were injured in the incident.
The TV station didn't identify the father. He says he's seeking justice for his daughter's killing and called on police to arrest the shooter.
Police say several people were celebrating outside a home when someone walked up and started shooting. The motive isn't clear.
