Police have charged 18-year-old Angel Morales with attempted murder for allegedly shooting 5-year-old Hailey Dominguez in the Bronx early on Sunday morning (prompting calls for better gun control from Police Commissioner Ray Kelly). Prosecutors say Morales fired three rounds into a crowd gathered near Dominguez's home and accidentally hit the girl in the lung. Morales has three prior convictions, including one for pot possession and another for assault, and is being held on $100,000 bail.
