From an article:
A 10-year-old girl was fatally injured in what appeared to be an accidental shooting at a Saxis Road residence Thursday night.
The Accomack County Sheriff’s Office received a report from the Eastern Shore 911 Center at 10:19 p.m. that a child had been shot at 23533 Saxis Road in Sanford.
Deputies when they arrived at the residence found the girl had sustained a gunshot wound to the body.
The victim was transported by ambulance to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, Md., where she was pronounced dead.
An autopsy is being conducted by the Medical Examiner’s Office in Baltimore, Md.
Officials did not release the victim’s name.
Godwin said investigation into the shooting is continuing but it appears to have been accidental.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
