Stepfather Shamir Myvett is Charged for the Accidental Shooting Death of Daisy Acevedo

Daisy Acevedo

The family of six-year-old Daisy Acevedo is still reeling from her shooting death on Monday morning in San Pedro, reportedly at the hands of her two-year-old sister.  Despite the family’s overwhelming grief in the wake of the accident, Daisy’s stepfather, thirty-year-old Shamir O’Neal Myvett, a tour operator, has been charged criminally for causing death by careless conduct.  Shortly after seven a.m., the report of a single gunshot startled residents in the D.F.C. area where the little girl was at home with her family.  Inside the residence at the time of the deadly shooting was Daisy’s sixteen-year-old sister, her nine-year-old brother, two-year-old Tricia Myvett and her step dad.  When they inquired what happened they observed the child with a fatal gunshot wound to the neck.  She had been shot with her parent’s licensed firearm. Despite being rushed to the San Pedro Polyclinic, Daisy succumbed to her injury.  Earlier today, Myvett was formally arraigned on a single charge in the magistrate’s court.
