SAN JUAN — Police say unidentified people with guns have shot at a vehicle headed to a church service in Puerto Rico and killed a 3-year-old girl inside.

Police spokeswoman Maria del Pilar Bon says Nayelis Sofia Manso died shortly after being taken by paramedics to a hospital following the Saturday night attack.

Sofia Manso received three wounds — two of them in her head — as she traveled in the vehicle with her mother and step-father in Parcelas Vieques about 25 miles east of San Juan.

Step-father Frankie Osorio was driving the car. The 26-year-old suffered gunshot wounds to his stomach and arms and was taken to a San Juan hospital. The child’s mother was not wounded.

Authorities are investigating the motive for the attack.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
