The child was found in their home sometime after seven o’clock on Monday morning. She had sustained a gunshot wound to her neck and her right index and middle fingers were partially amputated. The child died shortly before eight o’clock that morning while at the San Pedro Polyclinic. Police said they recovered one expended shell from the scene of the incident.
