Thanksgiving Shooting in Florida leaves 6 year old girl dead

A family in the Jupiter region of Palm Beach Florida has little to be thankful for today as they mourn the loss of 4 family members, including 6-year-old Makayla Sitton.

At the time of the Jupiter Palm Beach shooting massacre, 17 friends and family had gathered at the Sitton home at 104 Via Veracruz. At this time, authorities have no idea as to why 35-year-old Michael Merihige of Miami opened fire on the house full of thanksgiving revellers. Palm Beach Police have now issued a nationwide manhunt for 35-year-old Michael Merihige of Miami who was last seen leaving the scene in a 2007 blue 4 door Toyota Camry with Florida license plate number W42 7JT. 35-year-old Michael Merihige is reported to live on S.W. 88th Avenue in Miami and he is considered armed and dangerous.

Shortly before the Thanksgiving shooting which left 4 family members dead, Makayla's father, Jim Sitton, had tucked his 6-year old daughter into bed Thursday night. He said she was eager for her performance in the Nutcracker on Friday. An upset and grieving father, Jim Sitton told local television crews "God packed a lot of sweetness into that little body."

Dead at the scene of the Florida Thanksgiving shooting were Michael Merihige's sisters, Lisa and Carla Merhige, as well as Ramon Joseph. 6-year-old Makayla Sittondied later in hospital. A fifth man is currently in hospital as a result of injuries sustained during the Palm Beach Florida Thanksgiving shooting.
