ROGERSVILLE, Mo. – A young girl is dead after an accidental shooting, according to the Christian County Sheriff’s Office.

According to authorities, the 4-year-old girl and her mother were staying at a friend’s home. The mother went to a neighbor’s house, leaving the girl in the yard with a 24-year-old male, according to Christian County Sheriff Joey Kyle.

Sheriff Kyle believes the little girl was playing and is unsure whether the man knew the child was there. The man picked up a rifle to shoot something in the yard and at the moment of the shot, the girl rounded a corner by an out-building and was struck in the head.

While Sheriff Kyle believes the incident was an accident, it is being investigated as a crime.
