An 11-year-old girl was accidentally fatally shot by her father while the pair were hunting, Texas police announced Sunday.
Daisy Grace Lynn George, a sixth grade student at Hallsville Junior High, died Saturday evening after her father shot her with a high-powered rifle, according to the Harrison County Sheriff’s Office.
Police and first responders got to the scene around 5:15 p.m. and rushed Daisy Grace to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
“Anytime a young person loses their life, it’s tragic for all involved,” Sheriff Brandon Fletcher said in a statement. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends during this difficult time.”
The Harrison County Sheriff’s Office and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department are working together on the investigation.
It’s unclear if the father will face any criminal charges and the Harrison County District Attorney’s Office did not immediately return a request for comment from the Daily News Monday.
Daisy Grace’s school announced Sunday evening that all students and staff were encouraged to wear purple, her favorite color, to classes Monday.
