MIAMI -

(AP) - A four-year-girl is dead after being shot while sitting in a car, and detectives are investigating whether another young child fired the gun.

Miami-Dade Police report Rahquel Carr was shot in the upper body Saturday at about 6:10 p.m. She was airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital where she died.

Det. Roy Rutland says the girl was waiting in a white Mercedes-Benz with at least two other children when she was shot. All the children are believed to have been under age 10.

Rutland says the handgun was located and fired from within the car. An adult was standing nearby outside.

The Miami-Dade Office of the State Attorney is reviewing the case to determine if charges will be filed.
