6-Year-Old Dies After being Shot in Head


VICKSBURG, Miss. – Hit in the head by a bullet at her grandmother’s home, 6-year-old Jamerica Ragsdale is now dead.

Family members decided to take her off life support after doctors told them she was brain-dead.  The body of the little girl is now at the state crime lab for an autopsy.

Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace says a 16-year-old at the house was playing with a gun Tuesday when he accidentally pulled the trigger.  The bullet went through a bedroom wall and hit the girl in the head.  The teenager is being held at the Youth Detention Center on a charge of possession of a firearm by a minor.
