White Male Charged With Manslaughter In 3-Year-Old's Shooting Death
A Louisville white male was charged with manslaughter more than 19 months after a 3-year-old girl was fatally shot in south Louisville.
According to online records, Ishmael Graham Jr. was booked into Louisville Metro Corrections on Tuesday, one day after he was indicted by a Jefferson County Circuit grand jury on the charge.
Prosecutors said Graham is responsible for the death of 3-year-old Fayth M. Graham, of New Albany. Police said that on the afternoon of Sunday, March 15, 2020, Fayth was shot in the 4200 block of Lees Lane in Louisville, not far from Riverside Gardens and Cane Run Road.
At the time, a MetroSafe supervisor said the shooting was believed to be accidental and "self-inflicted."
Fayth was transported to Norton Children's Hospital, where she died.
A spokesman for the Louisville Metro Police Department said Graham's arrest is in connection to this case. He remains in Louisville Metro Corrections.
