A manhunt for a suspect considered “armed and dangerous” is underway in California after 8-year-old Leila Fowler was found stabbed to death in her home.
Leila Fowler and her 12-year-old brother were home alone in separate rooms on Saturday when the boy told police he found an intruder in the home, according to ABC News’ Sacramento affiliate KXTV.
The 12-year-old called his parents, who alerted sheriff’s deputies. The intruder fled and the boy found his sister with severe injuries, according to KXTV. She was pronounced dead at the hospital.
