Forever Donatto: Your Spooky, Rain-Soaked Baby-Shooting Video Of The Day
Investigators have released a surveillance video of the drive-by shooting that resulted in the death of 11-month-old Forever Donatto August 13.
There's not much in terms of information about the 3 a.m. shooting in the 8300 block of Ponnel in northwest Houston, but the overall vibe is creepy and sinister enough.
Rain falls and various cars roll by. No gunshots are seen, but investigators have said a spray of drive-by gunfire struck the girl in front of her home.
Donatto ""and several other persons were inside a vehicle parked in the driveway at the above address when an unknown male suspect fired several rounds in the vehicle's direction, striking it several times. One of the bullets penetrated the back seat of the car and struck the child," HPD says.
