14-year-old girl fatally shot in home of friend in St. Louis
ST. LOUIS (AP) — A 14-year-old girl has been fatally shot in a St. Louis home.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that police found the injured girl around 1:15 p.m. Sunday at a friend's home. She had been shot in the back.
The girl was pronounced dead at a hospital.
St. Louis Police Lt. Col. Lawrence O'Toole says no one has been arrested. He didn't characterize the shooting as intentional or accidental.
Marie Black, a woman who lives at the home, says the girl had spent the night with Black's daughter, as she often does on weekends. She says she was at work at the time of the shooting and doesn't know how the girl was shot.
Black says police were interviewing her daughter and an adult to determine what happened.
