Fatal stabbing of girl, 9, prompts Northern California manhunt

The Calaveras County Sheriff’s office says early Sunday that authorities are still searching for an intruder who killed a 9-year-old girl at her house.

The Sheriff’s office says that the man was considered armed and dangerous, and authorities are warning residents in the Northern California town of Valley Springs to lock their doors.

The office on Saturday declined to release details on the slaying.

KCRA-TV says the victim’s 12-year-old brother encountered an intruder in his home and saw the man run away. The boy went to check on his sister and found she had been stabbed.

The girl was later pronounced dead at a hospital.

Valley Springs is about 60 miles from Sacramento.
