A 3-year-old girl died Tuesday morning after being shot Monday night, Sheriff Barry Faile said.
Sheriff’s deputies responded to a home on Athena Road about 9:40 p.m. because of a shooting.
When they arrived, no victim was found, but about the same time, Lancaster Police Department officers stopped a speeding car headed toward Springs Memorial Hospital. Inside the car was the child, Faile said.
Faile would not say if the shooting happened inside or outside the home, or if it was a drive-by shooting. It was not known if the child was the intentional target.
