The Pennsylvania Game Commission wildlife officer overseeing Beaver County tells the Beaver County Times ( http://bit.ly/X2rxPS) he's working with police on the investigation of Saturday night's shooting in New Sewickley Township.
Police say the girl was shot around 8:30 p.m. Saturday by a family member who thought her black and white costume was actually a skunk. Investigators haven't released the identity of the girl, who was flown to Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. Her condition wasn't available.
New Sewickley police Chief Ron Leindecker says the girl was playing over a hillside near the house when she was shot.
