Victim’s Family Writes to 9-Year-Old Uzi Shooter

Fennemore Craig

The four children of Charlie Vacca, who was tragically shot and killed last month by a 9-year-old girl learning to shoot an Uzi submachine gun, have released a video statement directed at the young shooter.

The children, ages 11, 14, 15 and 19, each deliver a message in the video describing their father, how they feel about the young shooter and what their dad would have wanted.

According to Marc Lamber and James Goodnow, injury and wrongful death lawyers at Fennemore Craig, P.C., this incident has spawned a broader national discussion about gun safety and automatic weapons in the hands of children.

“Although we feel this discourse is important, and we intend to participate, Charlie’s loved ones don’t want it to overshadow the impact this tragedy has had on everyone involved. On behalf of the family, we ask that you respect their privacy during this difficult time, ” said Goodnow.

“Now, we intend to work cooperatively with authorities and investigative agencies to determine how this could have happened and more importantly, how it could have been prevented, ” added Lamber.

Lamber and Goodnow represent the mother, sister and children of Mr. Vacca.
