DA: 8-Year-Old Girl Inadvertently Shot By Father Or Uncle

Prosecutors in Boston say two brothers shooting at a man at a city park during July Fourth celebrations also inadvertently struck one of the suspects' 8-year-old daughter.

Nathas Jacquecine and Ian King pleaded not guilty Monday to charges including armed assault with intent to murder. Both were held on $30,000 bail.

Prosecutors say 31-year-old Jacquecine and 23-year-old King shot and injured a 35-year-old man in the city's Dorchester neighborhood at about 11 p.m. on July 4.

Authorities say while also striking the adult, who may be paralyzed in one leg as a result, they also struck Jacquecine's 8-year-old daughter in the foot.

Defense attorneys said surveillance video used to identify the shooters is inconclusive and there is no evidence tying their clients to the shootings.
