The young girl, who was in a vehicle at the time, was rushed to a nearby firehouse by a family member, where officers found her unconscious and not breathing. Despite efforts, she later succumbed to her injuries after being airlifted to a hospital.

Seventh District Commander LaShay Makal urged the community to come forward with any information regarding the incident, emphasizing the urgent need for cooperation.
