The mother also faces charges after handing her daughter a bag containing a gun during a heated argument that ended with the boy firing two bullets at a woman
A girl, aged just 10, has been charged with murder after she shot and killed a woman while she was arguing with her mother.
The child was arrested for second-degree murder after an incident in Florida on May 30.
The Orlando Police Department said the girl was taken to the Juvenile Justice Center without incident, police reported the day star.
The girl reportedly fired two shots at Lashun Rodgers after her mother, Lakrisha Isaac, handed her daughter a bag containing a gun during a heated argument that saw the couple exchange punches at a Mercy Drive apartment complex in Orlando.
After being shot, Rodgers later died in hospital.
Isaac was also arrested shortly after the murder and faces multiple charges including manslaughter, aggravated assault with a gun and child neglect.
“This is one of the most tragic cases I have seen in my 22-year career,” said Monique Worrell, prosecutor for Orange and Osceola counties.
“Our office has begun reviewing this case and will consider all the facts, including the child’s age, and all surrounding circumstances when making a charging decision.”
A witness described the girl yelling, “She shouldn’t have hit my mother” after she allegedly pulled the trigger on Rodgers.
He also claimed that Isaac took the gun off the girl and pointed it at his chest after trying to help Rodgers, prompting him to run back to his nearby apartment.
The victim’s aunt, Arlene Mathis, said of the murder: “She didn’t deserve this, it was a simple argument.
“What mother does that? It’s not a child’s actions, it’s a mother’s actions.”
