FORT MEADE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a 10-year-old girl has
been shot to death by an 11-year-old boy at her grandmother's home
in central Florida.
The Polk County Sheriff's Office says the shooting happened
shortly after 2 p.m. Tuesday at a home in Fort Meade.
A 10-year-old girl and three other children were in a room when she was shot once.
The child was pronounced dead at the scene.
Her name was not immediately released.
A spokeswoman with the sheriff's office says an 11-year-old boy,
who was at the home for Christmas, appears to be the shooter.
Authorities could not say what his relationship was to the child and have not yet determined if it was an accident.
