Quick , Kanawha County , West Virginia

A young girl who deputies said was accidentally shot by a boy Sunday at a Kanawha County home, has died.

Kanawha County deputies said the 10-year-old girl passed away overnight at a Charleston hospital.

Deputies said a 9-year-old boy was shooting with a target Sunday and accidentally shot the girl in the arm and chest. It happened at a home in the Quick area of the county.

The victim was taken to CAMC General Hospital where she underwent surgery.

The Kanawha County Sheriff's Office is investigating the incident.




Police were investigating Sunday after a child was shot by another child in Quick.

A 10-year-old girl is recovering after she was shot by a nine-year-old boy.

The shooting occurred in the 3800 block of Pentacre Road. The boy was shooting with a target and accidentally shot the girl in the arm and chest.

She was taken to CAMC General Hospital where she underwent surgery.

A neighbor, whose grandkids sometimes play with the boy, said guns should never be allowed near children.

"Yes, I am very worried,” Dave Cadle said. β€œHe's a good kid. It's just not right. Parents should keep them locked down. Keep them away from kids. This is a heavy hunting area, too. And it's hunting season, so that makes it a little worse sometimes."

The victim's current condition is not being released.

The Kanawha County Sheriff's Office is investigating the incident.




Deputies were on the scene of a shooting in the 3800 block of Pentacre Road in the Elkview area.

Dispatchers said a nine-year-old boy was shooting with a target and accidentally shot a young girl in the arm.

The victim's age or condition was not available.

Eyewitness News has a crew headed to the scene. Stay tuned for updates.
