Leila Fowler's death has a small California town stunned - and worried.
The stabbing of the 8-year-old girl in her home in Valley Springs, Calif., has residents loading their guns and keeping their kids home from school.
Police, meanwhile, have few clues as they hunt for her killer.
Police officials say that Leila Fowler's 12-year-old brother, who was home with his sister Saturday, spotted an intruder, who ran out of the house.
The boy then found his sister badly injured and phoned his parents, who were at a Little League game. Leila was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
The county coroner says she died from multiple stab wounds.
