Girl, 6, dies after being shot with pellet gun in Georgia

A six-year-old girl died Friday afternoon after being accidentally shot in the throat with a pellet gun at her home in Peachtree City, Ga.

Peachtree City police responded to the incident with fire and rescue crews shortly after noon local time and paramedics treated the unconscious girl at the scene.

She was rushed to Piedmont Fayette Hospital in nearby Fayetteville, roughly 30 miles south of Atlanta, where she later died.

Police said they were not planning on releasing details about who shot the girl.

"There'll be no charges, it's just a very tragic accident," said Peachtree Police Department Captain Rosanna Dove, adding that police would not identify the girl because of her age.

"We're not going to release all the details behind it out of respect for the family," she said.
