An 8-year-old Whitney girl died Thursday night after she was accidentally shot in the head.
Hill County deputies were sent at about 8:20 p.m. to a home in the 2000 block of Farm-to-Market Road 1534 after a caller reported a child had been shot, a news release from the sheriff’s office says.
"Medical personnel arrived shortly after and determined the victim was deceased," the news release said.
The child was pronounced dead at the scene and her body was taken for autopsy.
The release went on to say investigators believe the shooting was the result of an accident.
