Sidney Garrand has been detained on suspicion of killing an 8-year-old girl while she was riding with her father home from school. He is charged with murder for allegedly shooting and murdering an 8-year-old girl after an altercation with her father in a car.

Incident details

The incident occurred at 11 a.m. on October 27 and resulted in the death of a girl sitting in the back seat of her father’s car. Garrand grew irate when the other car turned left in front of him at a 4-way stop sign, and that is how it all began. The other car’s 28-year-old driver had just returned from picking his girls up from school.

Phoenix Police claim that the incident began when two guys involved in separate car disputes got into a brawl, got out of their vehicles, and started fighting at the intersection. One of the adult guys thought there was more going on, so he got a knife and stabbed the other adult male. During the incident, the 28-year-old man with the knife fled the black sedan containing the woman and an eight-year-old girl.

As the adult male drove away from the incident, he brandished a handgun and fired at the car as it exited the area, according to Sgt. Bowers.  In serious condition, the girl was brought to a hospital. She passed away as a result of her wounds, according to police, who also said that the shooter, 48-year-old Sidney Garrand, was apprehended and jailed after being discharged from the hospital.


Similar to this, Garrand cited his right to an attorney after being detained on Monday night and declined to talk with authorities. According to court documents, the girl’s father thinks Garrand knew there were kids in the car because he had seen into the backseat before the altercation. He is accused of murder as well as several assaults.

Thali Vargas, the aunt of 8-year-old Cassidy Moreno, said, “I believe for us it’s just a matter of letting people know that she wasn’t just the 8-year-old victim. It didn’t have to reach to that level from either side, and I believe that is what is very difficult for anybody. She went on to remark that the fact that the victim of the incident was a child who wouldn’t normally have been involved made it more difficult.
