A young girl’s life was tragically cut short after she was shot and killed at home. Philadelphia authorities are still trying to figure out what led to the death of four-year-old Kastari Isabella Nunez on April 21. According to a report made by Fox 29, young Kastari (who went by the nickname “Star”) was rushed to the hospital by members of her family. Doctors determined she had a gunshot wound to her abdomen and within just a few minutes, Kastari Isabella Nunez was dead.

Police have stated that Kastari had been shot sometime before midnight. Four adults were in the home at the time of the incident, including Kastari’s parents, and police said her father was upstairs in the middle of a drug deal when his daughter was murdered. Upon inspecting the home, authorities did find the firearm on the living room couch along with a single spent shell casing. At the time of this publication, authorities believe it was “extremely unlikely” that Kastari shot herself. However, investigators have found it difficult to determine who was responsible for pulling the trigger.

“My office has charged both parents for their roles in the completely preventable death of their child, along with a third individual who was also present at the time of this incident. This is very much an active investigation, and I want to thank the dedicated officers and investigators who are still working to determine all of the facts surrounding this tragedy, in order to seek justice for a child lost far too soon in a most horrific way,” said Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner.

It’s recently been reported that Kastari’s father, 29-year-old Alhakim Nunez, along with the girl’s mother, Iris Rodriguez, have both been arrested and charged with involuntary manslaughter, obstruction of justice, and endangering the welfare of a child. There are reportedly other charges to follow. Another woman at the scene, Ashley Gushue, was also taken into custody and is now facing multiple charges including obstruction of justice and tampering with evidence.
