Those who knew Kaari Thompson said she was a superstar in the making. Despite only reaching four years of age, people who knew her were already calling her charismatic. At the age of four, Thompson’s family should be preparing her to complete preschool and finish kindergarten. Instead, they are making arrangements for her funeral.

The fatal shooting of Kaari Thompson is the 67th homicide in Pittsburgh, this year. After the horrific occurrence, Pittsburgh’s leaders spoke out. Chief of police, Thomas Stangrecki, said this situation took place because people decided to settle their differences with gun violence. With that being said, he said the police department is working hard to find those responsible, and take them off the streets. Meanwhile, the mayor, Ed Gainey, urged people to stop using guns to solve their problems.

Kaari Thompson was a student at Pittsburgh Lincoln Early Childhood. Her teachers said she was the life of the party and a sweet girl always handing out hugs.
