Few details have been released about this event. Authorities have stated that a bullet came through the roof of the church and struck the child. According to police the bullet was most likely shot from a rifle from up to 3 miles away. Local police stated that celebratory gun fire has been normal in that part of Georgia over past years during New Years celebrations.
One principle with gun safety is to remember "what goes up, must come down". Never just shoot your gun into the air. If you don't know where your bullet is going to go, then you have no business allowing it to leave your gun!
