Girl Mistaken for "Skunk", Shot, in Intensive Care

Article doesn't say exactly what the costume was but apparently wasn't a skunk costume, just black.

I'm not sure how big skunks grow down there but mistaking a 9-year-old for one is hard to believe. The only interpretation I see is he was basically shooting at a shadow without knowing or investigating what it was at all.

What? Did they mean "what they will charge him with"?
