Monsters Among Us: 7-year-old Zaydanielys “Zai” Rodriguez Irizarry was hit by a bullet shot through her apartment wall; Three men who were drinking and causing trouble were arrested


Zaydanielys Rodriguez Irizarry

I will continue to update this post as charges are brought. Remember, they are still sorting evidence out and submitting the charges. Personally, I think they should all be held responsible for this innocent 7-year-old’s life being taken. They were drunk and playing around with the gun AND there was 2 sexual assaults. This was not fun and games.
