A 9-year old New Sewickley Township, Pennsylvania, girl was shot Saturday night after a relative mistook her for a skunk in her Halloween costume.

The girl was attending a Halloween party donning an all black outfit, a black hat and white tassel. An unidentified male at the house thought she was a skunk as she played on a hillside some distance from the home. The man then shot the girl in the shoulder with a shotgun.

According to the Christian Post, the girl was separated from the attendees at the time of the shooting. There were about three dozen party goers in attendance at the home at 376 Brewer Road, around 8:30 pm that night.

New Sewickley Police noted that the perpetrator was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time. Police believe the incident to be an accident at this point and have not filed charges.

The girl was flown to UPMC Children Hospital in Pittsburg. Her condition is not yet known.
