Octavia Jean Huber-Young was rushed to the hospital but she succumbed to her injuries.
“I am so angry at the world, even at God himself. Why did God have to take our precious little Octavia away? I just don’t understand why someone would get angry and turn that anger into violence and shoot an innocent 2-year-old girl,” Higgins said in the post. “Octavia was a beautiful girl.”
Higgins said that Andrew was kicked out of the house. He left, but then came back and started shooting, hitting Ethan twice as he was holding his daughter.
Samantha Higgins told WGME CBS 13 that her daughter was full of life.
Andrew Huber-Young was thrown out of the house before he returned with the gun.
“When she wanted my attention, she would always take my finger and take me to her room and play with her. And she always loved going out and playing on the swing set of hers,” Samantha Higgins told the television station.
Maine authorities did not confirm the relationship between the suspected shooter and the three victims in a news release Sunday.
Maine State Police said 2-year-old Octavia Huber Young died of her injuries.
