Instead of helping her prepare for a solo singing performance Saturday, a Chester County couple was grieving the loss of their 11-year-old daughter as police investigated her shooting death.
The West Chester Area School District posted memorial service information on its website Tuesday for Katherine "Katie" Jane Kolinger Urban, a sixth grader at G.A. Stetson Middle School who enjoyed soccer and music. She was the daughter of Paul Barry Urban Jr. and Jane Lantz Urban.
Authorities say she was the victim of an apparent accidental shooting by her 14-year-old brother at the family's Westtown Township home in the 500 block of Coventry Lane at 3:26 p.m. Friday.
