A 9-year-old girl was accidentally shot in the temple as she and two other girls roller skated through an area where robbers were shooting at their intended victims, two insurance salesmen. The young girl died 10 minutes later. Three weeks before the shooting, the girl’s mother took out a life insurance policy for the girl, and the plan was sold by the same two salesmen involved in the shooting.
