A seven-year-old girl was shot and killed in Michigan on Thursday night at a soccer practice facility. Timothy Nelson Obeshaw, 57, allegedly fired rounds into a vehicle holding Emma Watson Nowling and her mother, Sharon Elizabeth Watson. He then turned the handgun on himself. Emma passed away at a nearby hospital; the mother is listed as in serious but stable condition. Police officials said the 9 mm pistol used in the crime was legally registered to Obeshaw, who had a concealed carry permit. He reportedly once lived with the child and her family and was seen by witnesses as happily interacting with the girl at soccer practice shortly before the shooting. No motive has been established outside of family claims that the assailant had been experiencing paranoid episodes as of late.
