Child Slaying-Assault Rifle
Flowers and toys have been left July 9, 2013 outside the apartment in Grants Pass, Ore., where 5-year-old Alysa Bobbitt of Shady Cove, Ore., was shot and killed two weeks ago by an assault rifle. According to court records, Jon Andrew Meyer Jr. told police he was using the rifle as a crutch to help him get up off the couch when it fired a burst that went through the ceiling and killed the girl and wounded a woman with her in an upstairs room of the apartment.
