October 6, 2018

MOUNT HEALTHY, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a 3-year-old girl has died in an accidental shooting outside of Cincinnati.

The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office says the shooting occurred Friday afternoon at a home in Mount Healthy where the girl lived with her parents and four siblings.

The toddler hasn’t been identified. The Sheriff’s Office in a statement late Friday said the gun was legally owned by a resident of the home. The statement didn’t say how the girl was shot.

A Sheriff’s Office spokesman on Saturday wouldn’t provide further details, citing an “ongoing investigation.”
