4 year-old girl dies after being shot in head

Posted: Updated:

A four-year-old girl is dead after being shot in the head.

It happened at her home in Vardaman-that's in Calhoun County.

The mother and her boyfriend face criminal charges.

Emergency responders were called Thursday night. A neighbor was also there and she says she asked the mom what happened to little Juliette.

"I kept asking the mother what happened, what happened. And she wouldn't answer me, and she said she jumped off the bed and hit a post. But she wouldn't tell me where she was bleeding. So I lift up her head there, I could see a big hole there and a lot of blood," said neighbor Trudy Rangel.

Doctors in Memphis were the ones who determined the child had been shot.

The girl's mother and her boyfriend were arrested in Memphis.
