Kirsten Williams' family reacts to arrests
Kirsten Williams was the 7 year-old killed last week during a drive-by shooting. Police officials pledged to work day and night to solve the crime. They announced three arrests Wednesday. I was tasked with trying to get reaction from the girl's family. We had a number for her grandmother, but calls went unreturned. It's difficult because you don't really want to hound a grieving family. I searched Kirsten's obituary for other possible family contacts, cross-checked on Facebook, and sent a direct message to a great aunt. Fortunately, she was more than willing to express the family's gratitude for the swift arrests.
