Allison Griffor case gets federal attention 

Investigation into shooting of 5-year-old girl ongoing, says sheriff

The Charleston County Sheriff's Office is still working on an investigation of the October shooting of 5-year-old Allison Griffor. The office had this to say about the case in a press release today:

"On March 27, 2012, at approximately 5:45 p.m., Charleston County Sheriff Al Cannon, while entering the Lonnie Hamilton Public Services Building, was asked about the status of the Allison Griffor homicide case. Sheriff Cannon responded by providing that the case is still being actively investigated and that the 'investigation is moving along and that we feel very confident with some individuals involved in that case, and we are waiting for some things with the federal government to take place.'

"Due to the ongoing active investigation, specifics cannot be provided at this time as to how federal involvement is associated with the case."

Griffor was shot during a home invasion while sleeping in her family's home on Pierpont Avenue on Oct. 25, 2011. She died later at the Medical University of South Carolina hospital, but doctors were able to use her organs to save at least four children, including a 2-year-old in need of a heart transplant.
