On Saturday an eight year old Tennessee girl was viciously shot by her eleven year old neighbor after he asked to see her puppy and she refused.
MaKayla Dyer was shot in the chest by the boy father’s twelve gauge shotgun. Dyer was taken to a local hospital where she later died.
Police reported that Dyer was playing outside near the boy’s home when a conversation about her puppy occurred that ended in her tragic death.
Dyer was a second grader at White Pine Elementary School, the same school where the boy was in fifth grade.
Dyer’s mother told reporters that the boy bullied her in school and after she spoke with the school’s principal the bullying has subsided.
The eleven year old boy is facing charges of first degree murder.
