Preliminarily, it appears to be an accidental shooting by a family member. That family member is also a minor. There were adults in the home at the time of the shooting.
On December 22nd, at approximately 9:55 pm, patrol officers were called to the 15000 block of Saint Phillips Road for the report of a shooting. Officers found the young girl suffering from a gunshot wound. Officers and emergency medical personnel attempted life-saving measures on the victim. She was pronounced dead a short time later.
