Family of Slain Omaha Girl Says They Want Justice

payton-benson(AP) — The family of a 5-year-old girl killed by a stray bullet that entered her Omaha home says they do not want retaliation for her death.

Tabatha Manning says she wants justice for her daughter Payton Benson’s death. She asked the public to let police handle the investigation.

Manning and other family members made comments Thursday. Payton was fatally shot Wednesday morning as she ate breakfast in her north Omaha home. She was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Authorities say the stray bullet was connected to a nearby shooting that involved multiple people, weapons and gunfire.

Manning encouraged people involved in the shooting to come forward. Police made the same plea during a press conference Wednesday night. Authorities are trying to identify several possible suspects, but no arrests have been made.

    To all gun nuts : With rights come resposibility. If you are a gun owner and have anger issues than you need to lend your guns to someone who is sane.

    The NRA will not tell you this. They want to sell you more guns.
