MIAMI (AP) -- A four-year-old girl is dead after being shot while sitting in a car in Miami.
Miami-Dade Police reports the child was shot in the upper body Saturday at about 6:10 p.m. She was taken to Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital where she died.
Detectives say the girl was seated in a parked white Mercedes-Benz with several other small children when she was shot.
Investigators say it is unclear if one of the other children in the vehicle is responsible for the shooting.
The Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner Department will conduct an autopsy while the state attorney determines if charges will be filed.
