In every area, there are specific laws governing where a person can shoot a firearm. Sadly, a 9-year-old child is now in the hospital because a man chose to violate those laws and discharge a gun within city limits.

20-year-old Cristian Manzano has been accused of firing a weapon in his backyard on a residential street. Manzano had reportedly been doing some target practice when one of the bullets went through the kitchen window of a house next door.

A little girl inside the home was in the direct path of the projectile. She was shot in the head. According to neighbors, they heard a total of four to five gunshots on the day of the tragic incident.

They also claimed Manzano lives behind the residence where the child was struck. Police questioned four men in correlation to the shooting. Manzano was the only one who was arrested.

He is now facing charges of ‘recklessly discharging a firearm in city limits’ and ‘causing serious bodily injury to a child’. He was taken to Dallas County jail.

Manzano has a criminal background with numerous drug charges. He was also previously cited for unlawful possession of a firearm. The victim’s condition is currently listed as critical.
